The Little Red Hen

Written by Kathy Shepherd. Posted in Nursery

As part of our Farm Unit, we read the story of the Little Red Hen. In the story, the hen asks her friends, the pig, the goose and the horse for help to prepare the wheat for making bread.

We decided it would be fun to make some bread just like the Little Red Hen!

First we had to add the ingredients: flour, yeast, a little sugar and salt and some hot water.

Secondly we mixed it all up and kneaded the dough.

Then the children turned the dough into a shape they liked: pizzas, dinosaurs, fish, lions etc.

Lastly, we gave the trays to the chef to bake for us in the oven.

We really enjoyed making bread 🙂
