Today our class learned how to make bannock! We had two ladies come in and show us how they make bannock. One group made fried bannock and the other group made baked bannock with raisins. We got to knead the dough and help cook it. When we were done making it, we washed the dishes and cleaned up. We made butter from scratch to top our bannock with and Mrs. Wierenga brought jam and juice to share, as well. For many of us it was our first time making and eating bannock.
By working with the ladies we learned a bit about their heritage. We now know bannock is an important part of many traditional meals, and can be made many different ways. The ladies took great pride in teaching us the ways that they make this delicious treat. We loved tasting the different types of bannock that we had made.
We shared the bannock with lots of people in our school. It felt great to share something that we made.
We were very excited to have our special guests teach us how to make this scrumptious treat! We learned today not just about baking, but about another culture and being respectful for what we have to share.
Mrs. Morrison’s Class is a spirited and hardworking group of Grade 5 and 6 students. We run a store called Snappy Treats and we like supporting different charities. As a class we like doing math and learning new things.
