    We have designed and made bread rolls as Thomas Farrinor would have made in his bakery on Pudding Lane. First we tasted some different types of bread to see what we liked. After that we practised kneading and shaping techniques using salt dough. We then planned the shape and flavour that our roll was going to be. We mixed a dough and created our own bread rolls. Once cooked, we took them home where we could enjoy eating them. Delicious!

    We have been learning about the Mexican masks that are made in the Mexican town of Tacuaro. We were inspired to make our own masks. First we designed what we wanted to masks to look like. Then we used clay to form the shape of the masks and printed detail into the clay. Once it was dry, we painted the masks. The masks are now on display in class. Don’t they look fantastic!

    We have been learning about Mexico and the town of Tacuaro. To celebrate our learning, we had a Mexican day where we ‘went on holiday’ to Mexico. We went to the airport where we caught a flight to Mexico. In Mexico we learnt Mexican dancing, made and ate Mexican food, made Mexican masks and went to the swimming pool. We had a fantastic holiday and did not want to come home!
