“Bringing Learning to Life”

Autumn 1 - Food Glorious Food!


Food Glorious Food!

We began our topic by tasting different smoothies and looking at what makes good packaging. This led to the whole class making their own fruit smoothies towards the end of the unit. They were delicious! We learnt about lots of different fruits and vegetables with the help of the ‘The Kitchen Disco’ by Clare Foges and Al Murphy. This was a lovely book that inspired us to get up and move! We loved learning about lots of different adjectives to help us describe the different fruits and vegetables. We went on to read ‘Supertato’ by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. The Evil Pea caused chaos in our classroom! We created exciting ‘setting boxes’ and made our own vegetable characters to write our own stories about. In Science we learnt what food groups keep us healthy and the importance of exercise and hygiene.
