2MH walk around New Cross

Today, 2MH walked around New Cross making observations about city life!  We looked at the houses and streets, writing down what we saw and what we liked and didn’t like.  After we had looked at the buildings of London from Telegraph Hill Park, we stood on the pavement of Queen’s Road and counted the traffic.  We will use this information to plot a bar chart.

Today, 2MH baked bread using the recipe attached to this post.  The children worked together in groups to mix 500g flour, 300ml water, yeast, salt and oil.  After kneading and leaving the dough for 10 minutes twice so the bread had time to rise, the children left it for 30 minutes so that it had time to prove.  They then made their own special shape out of the dough.  After that they left it for another 30 minutes before it went in the oven.

In Science, we are learning about materials.  As the ingredients can never go back to the way they were before they were cooked, bread dough makes an irreversible change when heated.

At the end of the day we ate the bread and it was absolutely delicious.  Mrs Castle thought it looked as good as if it had bought it from a shop!  2MH worked hard to write about what they did and they all worked well as a team today.  Well done, 2MH!
