Autumn, and Ellie and I did our traditional session of
mess bread making!
Leaves, berries, twigs and other chaos from the wood in the back garden, to inspire the shapes applied to the loaf… a sticky bread dough… 30 minutes in the oven and you’ve got an Autumnal
Not quite as simple as soda bread, but a tasty piece of art nevertheless.
If you’re doing a unit on bread making (perhaps the QCA unit) it is always useful to have some background information.
Try these two sites for starters:
A while back I reported on a band named Army Defense that recorded a song for each country in the world. Really useful for geography or World Weeks. (Well worth a look if you didn’t catch it before)
Instead of taking a rest, the folks at Army Defense decided to swiftly move on to their next project. Stratocaster Upon Avon presents us with a song for every Shakespeare play and sonnet (that’s 42 tracks!).
Again, the guys cover every possible sub-genre rock has to offer and even pay tribute to Hamlet with a rap. The album is available completely free for download, and is really quite impressive.
Saw this sign in a garage forecourt “conveniences.”
Does make you think:
a. how careful one needs to be with the English language
b. what you could ask for in life!
