As part of our topic about the Shang Dynasty, year 4 have been making porridge as they would have in the Shang Dynasty times. The children weighed out the millet, milk, water and star anise for their recipes. They then mixed them well and they were all put together in a pan. Once outside the children collected sticks and assisted in creating a fire for the porridge to cook on. The children then tasted the porridge so they could see what Shang Dynasty food might have tasted like. The general feeling seemed to be that they did not massively enjoy the taste however, we all had fun making it!!
