July 31, 2013
This week Shivani, Gabriella, Laura, Zoe and Mrs Sergianis (Zoe’s mum- Our parent helper) went to Brumby’s as a part of our inquiry topic about businesses. Our first session was on the 29th of July 2013 and we learnt lots. We learnt how brumby’s works and what the safety rules are to keep everyone safe.
We had a tour of the whole shop. Tee (The customer’s server) and Vaishali (The Baker) showed us how there machinery works and what they are used for because the manager (Jay) was not at Brumby’s because there was a flour incident and she was not able to inform us about her business.
We asked many questions about their business and saw 50 bags of flour made for Brumby’s Tee told us that all the products they receive are either made at the Brumby’s inMountWaverleyor at the factory of Brumby’s.
Vaishali showed us the fridge which is where they keep the dough for the next day so the bakers can cook the bread in the morning. The fridge was so big that we could walk into it but it was way to cold to stay in so we came out.
After Vaishali showed us a big box the size of a fridge well inside was very stinky. They keep all of the dough in there when they want the dough to rise but we couldn’t look at it for long because it was stinky!
We tried one slice of the carrot cake which Tee gave us (To be honest none of us liked carrot cake) but once we tried the cake we fell in love with it. We were all very impressed!
We had loads of info in our graphic organisers which is where we are going to keep our information for the expo on the last weeks of term 3.
At around 10:45 a bunch of people came in to purchase some bread and Tee gave us some delicious chocolate muffins for free which was extra nice!!!!! So Shivani, Gabriella, Laura and Zoe had a great idea that we should give them something in return… a card to show our gratitude for their help
We did not really want to leave but we had to get back to school so walked back to school with our lovely helper Mrs Sergianis. Thank you very much!
We had so much fun and cannot wait until next week to learn more about the nuts and bolts. We definitely recommend Brumby’s as they have fresh bread and help the community.
