What goes into a balanced diet?

Can you remember any examples of our 5 groups: fruit and vegetables, carbohydrates, dairy, oils/ spreads and proteins?

This week, we have begun to read our new text, The Runaway Wok. The children enjoyed the story, and its links to fairy tales they already knew like Jack and the Beanstalk. The children have written some amazing sentences this week, using questions, commands and exclamations. They have also been using adverbs to describe how the characters were behaving.

In Maths, the children have been applying their knowledge of halves and quarters in order to count. We then reviewed everything they have learned about fractions, which the children did very well, especially considering lots of the learning was before our half-term break.

In PSHE, the children were very sensible when learning their new vocabulary about their bodies, and identifying biological differences. In Science, we planted our cress seeds, experimenting with different conditions, and the children are looking after them very well. We are all curious to see whether they will grow, especially when some of them don’t have water, soil or light. In Geography, we revisited what a human feature was, in comparison to a physical feature. In D.T. we looked at how much sugar is hidden in our foods, as well as the parts of a balanced diet, and the different food groups.
