Design and Technology – Cooking

In design and technology, we have been recreating Anglo-Saxon food. We have learnt about what ingredients the Anglo-Saxons would have had and where each of these ingredients come from. We discussed that they wouldn’t have had sugar and learnt that they used honey to sweeten their food instead. We have practised reading recipes, accurately measuring and weighing. Once cooked, the children tasted their products and evaluated them discussing what they thought went well and how they could improve next time. The children enjoyed participating in a parent activity where they we able to make Anglo-Saxon bread.
