Creative fun with bread at Sherston
4:00pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
Pupils in Sherston rose to the challenge of making salt-free bread as part of the harvest preparations.
Youngsters at Sherston Primary School kneaded and plaited their wholemeal dough last week to help them learn about nutritious food and how it is made, as well as learning about the health impacts of a diet high in salt.
Parent governor Fiona Picton said: “They all made funny shapes and smiley faces; there were no plain bread rolls. The children weren’t necessarily aware of the ingredients that go in to bread; it was important for them to make the connection between what they eat and where the food comes from.”
Children took part in bread making workshops before taking their harvest collection in a procession to the local church, to be distributed by a Bristol charity.
Year three pupil, Maddie, said: “I’m making a hedgehog but it’s not going too well – the spikes are flopping over.”
Parent Suzie Power said: “My son brought his bread home and it was lovely. His was in the shape of a snail.”
