What an amazing, jam-packed day we have had today! The children have discussed all things salads, including what makes a healthy salad (including foods from at least three of the main food groups!) and how eating healthily gives us lots of energy. They then worked in groups to plan and design their own salad, choosing from a wide range of ingredients. This afternoon, they were able to make their chosen salad – practising cookery skills such as chopping, grating and dicing – and even taste it and see whether they liked it!
All of the children loved their salad and were able to evaluate what they liked and what they might improve afterwards.
Here are just a few pictures to show how much fun they had!
