In Year 4 Design and Technology we have been making porridge just like they would have in Shang Dynasty times. The children weighed out the oats, milk, water and star anise for their recipes. They then mixed them well and they were all put together in a bowl ready to cook. The children then tasted the porridge so they could see what Shang Dynasty food might have tasted like. The response was mixed but lots of us thought it tasted really good!
