| Year 2
Following an exciting fruit tasting lesson last week, the children were able to make their final choices of fruit for making their own fruit salad.
In our Design & Technology lessons the children have been learning about a variety of different fruits from around the world. When tasting a variety of fruit, they were encouraged to use their senses to extend their descriptive vocabulary, make comparisons and informed decisions about their choice of fruit for their own salad. The children also learned the importance of food hygiene and safety and how to use different equipment in order to prepare and cut their fruit. At the end of the day they were all delighted to take their colourful fruit salad pots home to eat or share with family for tea. Over the forthcoming weeks, they will build upon the skills learned in this lesson by slicing and grating in order to create their own coleslaw. Our photographs illustrate some of our budding chefs of the future.
