Resource Overview

Are you looking for a fantastic food project for your pupils?  These brilliant resources from the Real Bread Campaign aim to encourage bread baking in schools, and contain lots of ideas to get you started. Featuring information and ideas to help you run practical bread making classes, the Bake Your Lawn and Lessons in Loaf packs will encourage pupils to think about where their food comes from and how it is made, engaging them right along the journey from seed to sandwich.  

All activities are linked to Key Stage 2 National Curriculum objectives, and would work just as well with a class or an eco team. Find out more at
