This week, as part of our science topic, Gases, Year 5 all made bread at the same time.
Working in groups, some children made bread with yeast and some made it without. They were trying to answer the question; Why do we add yeast to bread? The results showed that bread made with yeast was lighter, looked better and tasted better. We also explored how yeast causes these differences and that the gas produced by the yeast helps the bread to rise and it also makes the dough go further, we produced more bread from the dough with yeast. We also had a lot of fun along the way and a tasty treat at the end.
