Making Bread in the Nursery

In nursery we baked our own bread.  This activity supported our learning in several areas, including mathematical development as we counted in the cups of flour, communication and language as we follow instructions and chat about the food we eat at home, physical development as we mix and knead the bread dough.  When the bread was baked the children really enjoyed tasting the hot fresh bread and the following day we used ate the bread with a choice of topping that the children spread themselves.
