How do we get Bread?

It’s Harvest Time and today the children were learning about how grain is turned into bread. Firstly, Lynda read The Little Red Hen and then the children had a look at some real corn and wheat. They learned that the corn is then cut and ground into flour which is then used to make bread. We used a grinder to actually grind some grain so that everyone could see the flour forming and then mixed this with some water to make dough. Everyone was fascinated with the corn grinder and found out that it was hard work to tturn the handle and get flour from the grain. Well done everyone.
