We played a game where we had to describe some of this term's key words without using certain words (a bit like the family game Articulate). It was a bit tricky!

Wet Play Time Fun!
Which nutrients are inside our food? We looked at LOTS of different packaging and compared to find which foods are high/low in fat/sugar/protein. We then discussed which foods we thought would be the most healthy, reminding ourselves of what the Eat Well plate tells us.
Maths- Multiplication and Division
For the next 3 weeks, our focus will be on multiplication and division which will really help to boost our times tables work for TT Rock Stars. Today, we used the counters to remind ourselves that multiplication is repeated addition and that division is the inverse of multiplication.
This term our Art topic is 'Fabulous Food'. We will be looking at artworks by three different artists who have all been inspired by food. We will explore Modroc as a modelling material, try casting with powder and further develop our clay modelling skills. Once we have explored the different resources, we will plan our own food themed artwork, taking inspiration from the studied artists.
Where does our food come from?
Over the term, we will be finding out how food gets to our shops and where it comes from before choosing ingredients near the end of term to make 3 different ragu sauces to try. Today, we looked at the carbon footprint of bringing food from countries far away before thinking about which country ragu originates from. Here we are finding Italy in the atlases.
Why do we eat food? Why are some foods deemed unhealthy whilst others are healthy? Today, we started to look at the nutritional values of food and the nutrients contained within our favourite meals.
A mindful afternoon of stretching and looking after our wellness.
