Cooking our own bread in forest school!

We had a very exciting day in Forest school today! Mr O’Brien taught us how to make bread and cook it on the fire.

We learnt how to make the bread by mixing flour, salt and water.  

Mr O’Brien demonstrated how to knead the dough using his hands. Then we flattened the dough and placed it carefully on the fire. We made sure we stayed far back from the fire to keep us safe. The bread didn’t take long to cook and we were so excited to taste it! We all tried it and said it was “delicious” and “yummy”. When we were finished we made sure we put the fire out by pouring water over the area.


It was so exciting to make our very own bread and cook it ourselves! It was even better to taste it! We can’t wait for our next forest school!
