Flat-breads go down a Treat!

We were baking Stone Age style in P3 this morning with help from Mrs MacDonald, Mrs MacKinnon and Mrs P’s sturdy girdle pan.

We used traditional Spelt flour and water ,kneaded it int a dough which we rolled flat before baking it on the roasting hot girdle.

We allowed ourselves butter but also honey which the Stone Age people did gather from wild bees nests in the trees. As Alec said “Their pain was our gain!”.

We hope some of the children will make you some flatbreads at home for you to sample.

In the Primary 3 class we worked on posters to promote the school fayre,using the word processors to insert text boxes and pictures. In Primary 4 we used coding to move theBeebots around the classroom.

In our own class time we created simple “seige engines” adapting our designs until we found the best one to catapult the missiles(cotton balls) across the class.
