Bread experience:

Procedural writing
WALT write instructions for the reader to follow
Success Criteria
Give an explanation about how the instructions will help you (introduction)
Write an equipment or ingredients list
Begin each instruction with a verb (an action word)
Use specific vocabulary
Order instructions so they are easy to follow

I was at my Grandma’s house and it was a rainy day. We thought of making a egg on toast but we realized that we didn’t have any bread. So we decided to make some.
1. Yeast is the only ingredient in bread that makes it rise.
2. The texture of the bread feels really gooey when you knead it.
3. Flour is basically the only ingredient in making bread.
Have you ever made textured homemade bread?
  • 1 ⅓ Cups Flour
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar
  • 1 Heaped tsp Yeast
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • ½ cup Warm Water ( NOT HOT )
  • Combine the white sugar, flour and the yeast thoroughly together in a mixing bowl.
  • Tip in warm, NOT HOT, water carefully then blend olive oil and pound them together.
  • Fold the wet and dry mixture constantly for 3 - 5 minutes until it looks gooey and doughy.
  • Gathering the mixture together you want to grab a medium size piece of baking paper and then knead it for 1 minute and 30 seconds ( only a few folds of the dough.)
  • With your dough looking well combined and all ready to let it rise you want to grab a  greased baking paper sheet with cooking spray on it, and then finish up doing your dough with the shape you want it to be.
  • Place a towel over the dough and let it rise for 25 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the bread is golden.

I did this piece of writing because some of Totara Whanau have been learning about the science experience of making home-made bread. Some people learnt about what makes wheat rise and that is what I learnt. The ingredient that makes the dough rise is yeast because the carbon dioxide is released from the dough which is making it rise. Next time I would make sure to not put too much of one ingredient. The learning muscle that I was stretching was my perseverance muscle because I did not give up when the dough was to sticky or runny. What I enjoyed about this experience was getting to know all the weird and fun facts about bread for example, getting to know that yeast makes the dough rise.
