Year One have been tasting exotic fruits lately and all of them have discovered a fruit that they rather liked and would willingly eat again! As part of their food nutrition lesson, they were introduced to some of the tropical fruits that feature in the story Handa’s Surprise by Eileen Browne (which was a feature text in literacy lessons this term). They judged each fruit in terms of its appearance, its flavour, its texture and its smell. Next the children created a tally chart to record their favourite fruits and then used this raw data to create a block graph. Later in the term, Year One will be creating desserts with fruits and learning more about how fruits and vegetables contribute to a healthy balanced diet.
