    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.


  • La Plaza Ecópolis es un proyecto de ecosistema urbano ubicada cerca

    Ayuntamiento de Rivas Vaciamadrid. Los edificios que la componen son ejemplo de arquitectura sostenible y respetuosa con el medio

    ambiente. 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

    diseñado sus propias casas sostenibles. Esperamos que algunos de 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.

    Leyre has devised a Mediterranean garden with

    herbs: thyme, rosemary ... She also thought of a pond of

    macrophyte plants in order to recycle the water.

  • The house of Andrea M. is

    designed to save energy,

    water, heat and light. Large windows and solar panels

    take advantage of the long hours of sunshine in Rivas.

    A beautiful vertical garden insulates the house and

    adds originality to the project

    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?

    Cristina ha pensado en la casa de sus sueños. Aprovecha las energías

    naturales para que el interior esté completamente domotizado. Por ejemplo, un robot se

    encarga de recoger las

    basuras y reciclarlas. Lo más interesante: si

    quieres dormir sólo tienes que presionar un botón y

    aparece la cama ya hecha. ¿No es increíble?

  •  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 


    → 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.
