Project/s:

Spring 2

Food Glorious Food!

 

We will start our half term by focusing on different types of fruit and making our own fruit salad, like Oliver in our story 'Oliver's fruit salad'. We will move onto where we purchase our food from and create shopping lists to go shopping. After this, we will be delving deeper into where our food comes from, looking at the production and which foods come from plants and animals. We will be planting our own fruit and vegetable seeds in our allotment and the children will be looking at what the seeds need to grow. We will then take a trip around the food and explore different cuisines from other countries and having our own food tasting party!

Books to enjoy at home:
