Year 1 Food for thought

In Year 1, we have been learning about healthy food. We have tasted lots of fruits and collected data about our favourite fruits. We represented this data using pictograms. We then designed our own healthy fruit salads. We have been thinking about how to safely prepare food, making sure we wash fruit prior to preparation and washing our hands before handling food. We have also been looking at safety, making sure we hold food and knives correctly when cutting fruit. We then followed our designs and all of the health and safety rules we had discussed to make our very own fruit salads. They were juicy, healthy and delicious! We were able to evaluate our designs, thinking about what worked well and what we might adapt / change if we made our salads again. We were also able to write a set of instructions for the salad making process.
