Last week Reception Class had three days of great learning focussed on ‘Fantastic Fruit’. As part of a Design and Technology mini project, they spent the week learning about different fruits, and went to the local greengrocers to buy some.
Back in class the children tasted a range of tinned, dried and fresh fruit and then planned a layered fruit dish, with the fruits they liked and with the option of adding natural yogurt. The children followed their plans very carefully to create the fruit dish they wanted and then enjoyed eating them!
The class talked about needing to eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day, and their fruit dishes certainly helped towards achieving this goal.
In their own learning, continuous provision, everyone thoroughly enjoyed exploring a range of citrus fruits, making plates of fruit on the Creation Station, painting pictures of fruits and using the fruit templates to create pictures.
