This learning will be delivered in the context of planning and making bread to share with classmates.


  • Pupils will investigate bread including how it is made and the varieties found around the world.
  • Pupils will learn about the role of bread, and meals which include bread, in a healthy, varied diet.
  • Pupils will practise bread making skills while working safely and hygienically.
