Making bread in forest school

The year fives enjoyed making campfire bread (damper) today. They added flavourings to the flour before adding the water and kneading all the ingredients together in a bag. They then wrapped the dough around a stick and baked it over the fire. I think Ben’s mouth is still burning from all the chilli flakes he put in! Did you know the Iron Age Celts invented bread after they farmed different grains such as wheat, oats, millet and spelt? They had to grind the grains into flour with a rock, but as this was such hard work they invented the mill stone which they turned with stick.
