Fruit tasting

Fruit tasting

As part of our Handa’s Surprise work, we have been tasting different fruits from the story. First we learn about our taste buds on our tongue, then described the taste of the fruit using this vocabulary; sweet, sour, bitter. Here are just some of the funny faces we pulled, especially when tasting the lemon.

We decided which fruit we liked and didn’t like and then we designed a fruit kebab which we will make next week in class.

Fruit Salad Faces in Year 1

Fruit Salad Faces in Year 1

As part of our design and technology work, the Year 1 children have been learning about fruits and vegetables. We’ve tasted a range of new foods and designed fruit salads to eat. To make our salads more fun, we turned them into colourful faces. The children worked so hard and enjoyed eating their creations once they were finished.

DT in Year 1

As part of our design and technology block, the Year 1 children are going to be making healthy, fruit salad faces. We have been researching the most popular fruits and vegetables in our class, which meant that we had to try a range of different foods. We have tried coconut, pomegranate seeds, pineapple, plum, mangos and many more fruits and vegetables that we might include as our ingredients. Lots of children have discovered some food that they now like and are going to ask their parents to add it to their shopping lists. Well done, Year 1!

Celebrations

Celebrations

Our topic this half term has been all about different celebrations. Here are some of the different celebrations we have been learning about.

We learnt all about the Hindi celebration of Diwali. We made rangoli patterns in the coloured rice, listened to and acted out the story of Rama and Sita and made diya lamps because Diwali is the festival of light.

Next we learnt about the Jewish celebration Hanukkah. We listened to the story about the 8 days that it take places over 8 days and we talked about what activities we do on each day of the week. We made a menorah, and then had donuts to celebrate the festival.

We have started our RE topic all about birthdays. It was Ellie the elephants birthday so we made cards, decorated cakes and the classroom and had a party for her to celebrate. We will begin to get ready for the next big celebration…Christmas!
