P4B's Amazing Breadwinner Bakery Project

Have you noticed P4B's posters advertising their very own loaves and muffins at Scotmid stores?  P4B's own recipe specially made Breadwinner Bakery loaves and muffins will be on sale on Friday 17th June and Saturday 18th June at your local Scotmid stores in Warrender Park Road,  Marchmont Road & Leven Street. Expect very long bread queues! All proceeds generously go back to school. Thank you!

P4B had a wonderful, extraordinary experience with two workshops from The Breadwinner Bakery.  Sean and Lesley helped our pupils create their own loaves and muffins, worthy of a One Planet Picnic this weekend on Saturday's International Day for Picnics!
This is what they say about their company:

At The Breadwinner we’re passionate about baking. Since 1973 our master craftsmen bakers have been baking in Edinburgh – kneading and shaping dough by hand. We prefer to use traditional, simple methods and allow time to naturally enhance our products, rather than adding anything that would change the quality or flavour of our breads. We’re proud of our heritage – and work hard to supply breads, cakes and pastries that are locally made, freshly baked and full of flavour.

Read all about this extraordinary project partnership with artisan breadmakers The Breadwinner Bakery on the P4 Class Pages:

Breadwinner Bakery Session One
Breadwinner Bakery Session Two

What a great conclusion to our bread experience! P4B went along to the Scotmid at Warrender Park Road where the Breadwinners Bakery and Scotmid had put on a great display of the bread and muffins we designed! There were posters and they had even made a loaf with the Sciennes school logo on it!
Then it was time to buy! We had the opportunity to buy the loaf and muffins ourselves in the shop but don't worry, we left a few!! Scotmid and the Breadwinners Bakery have very kindly said that the proceeds today and tomorrow will be given to the school! So good excuse for treating yourself to a great loaf and muffins!
What a truly great experience for P4B! Who again did themselves proud!

Toby Runner Up in Edinburgh 20mph Mascot Competition

When Toby McIntosh came second in City of Edinburgh's 20mph mascot competition, he won a smoothie bike session for his P7 class. Niall brought the bike, juice and fruit to school and they had great fun making delicious smoothies.

The class chose Sophie E's carton design as their favourite and she won a buff. Well done Sophie!
