The Maths, The Witch, and The Soda Bread

N's performance on Friday of the White Witch in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe was great, (despite screaming hysterics on Friday morning that she couldn't possibly do it!) and I managed to watch it without crying!!

We started off our week yesterday as we mean to go on with cookery and maths.

Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall had inspired me with his ever so simple soda bread. I thought it would be perfect for N as she loves making and eating bread, but waiting for the dough to rise needs so much forward planning. This recipe really is so simple for children to do all on their own.

It looked beautiful when it came out of the oven. All you need is;

500g plain flour
1 and a half teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
pinch of salt
400ml yoghurt

stir it all together and bake for 30 minutes.

However M was the only person who actually liked the bread, it was a bit too stodgy for N and Hubby. I vow to make a gluten free version to see what its like!

While the bread was cooling we started to learn about Mean, Median, Mode and Range. I found some good worksheets at;
