History of The Hot Cross Buns.
In many historically Christian countries, the buns are traditionally eaten on Good Friday, with the cross
standing as a symbol of the crucifixion. They are believed by some to pre-date Christianity, although the
first recorded use of the term " hot cross bun" is not until 1733. According to food historian Elizabeth
David, the buns were seen by Protestant English monarchs as a dangerous hold over of Catholic belief
in England, being baked from the consecrated dough used in making the communion wafer. Protestant
England attempted to ban the sale of the buns by bakers but they were too popular, and instead
Elizabeth I passed a law permitting bakeries to sell them, but only at Easter and Christmas.
Hot Cross Buns Recipe.
What you need:
450g/1lb strong plain flour
1 1/2 tsp fast action dried yeast
200ml/7 fl oz milk
1/2 tsp of salt
1 level tsp mixed spice
75g/3 oz caster sugar
50g/2 oz melted butter
1 medium egg
25g-50g/1-2 oz currants
25-50g/1-2 oz chopped mixed peel (or extra dried fruit)
What to do:
Put all the dried ingredients including the yeast into a bowl. Stir in the melted butter.
Mix the egg and milk in a jug, and gradually mix into the dried ingredients a little at a time. Knead well
until you have smooth, but not sticky dough. Add a little more flour if needed.
Knead the dough on a floured surface until perfectly smooth, put back into the bowl and cover the bowl
with cling film. Leave in a warm place to rise for an hour.
Alternatively, make in a bread maker using the dough setting. Add the dried fruit at the raisin beep.
Grease and flour two baking trays and preheat oven to 200C/gas 6.
Divide the dough into 12 pieces and shape into buns. Set the buns well apart on the prepared trays and
leave them in a warm place until doubled in size. Make two cuts on the top of each bun to form a cross.
Bake just above the centre of the oven for 15-20 mins. Leave the buns to cool on a wire rack; while still
warm brush them with a glaze made from 40g caster sugar dissolved in 2 tablespoons water.

After a visit to Ecópolis, our 6th grade students have designed their
own sustainable homes. Hopefully some of these designs come true.
Después de una visita a Ecópolis, nuestro alumnado de sexto ha

estos diseños se hagan realidad.
Carla's house is built on water. Water serves to control
the temperature of the house, but also is useful for
providing electrical power through a turbine.

Cristina has thought about the home of your dreams. Take advantage
of natural energies so that the inside is completely Domotic. For
example, a robot is responsible for collecting waste and recycling.
The most interesting thing: when you want to sleep, you just press a
button and a ready-made bed appears for you. Is not it amazing?

Eco-friendly houses survey in the Czech school
In our school two classes (class 2B and class 3A) worked
on the survey. We decided to divide the survey of the
ECO-HOUSES into four parts. First, the children filled in a
“Questionnaire number 1” about Eco-houses and we found out how
much they know about this topic. Then we asked an architect from our
town to give the children a 45-minute lecture on eco-friendly houses.
Then the children from class 2B made models of eco-houses using
recycling material. After that, they filled in “Questionnaire number 2”
to find out how much they learnt about Eco-houses.
The children liked this activity very much. They were happy
to have an architect in their lessons. They listened and watched
his powerpoint presentation carefully and learnt a lot of new things about
houses. Then, they also very much enjoyed making the models. They
were divided into groups and each group made a special house. When
they finished it, they presented their house to the classmates, teachers
and the architect. They made some eco-family houses, an eco-school,
eco-swimming pool, eco-pub and a water-house. Then we displayed their
houses in our school corridor so that the rest of the school
could see their perfect architectural abilities. We also asked a
journalist to come, to make some photographs of the working
children and write an article about this special project day and
put it in the newspaper.
Now you can have a look at both of the questionnaires with their
results. You will see how professional the children got after the “Eco-day”
with the architect
RESULTS OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE 1
→ 47 pupils filled in this questionnaire before the lecture with the
architect. The children were guessing most of the answers. They did not
talk about it with their teachers before.
