Each term, Miss Perrett will invite 30 children to explore the world of...FOOD! We will explore how we eat food in the UK compared to other countries around the world. Our day will be full of exploring new tastes and finding out what it good for our bodies!

We've learned so much during our first skills day and Miss Perrett is hopeful that each of the other gorups will do too! We played fun games to help us learn how to use a knife and fork and then learned about how to make healthy food choices. After break, we had a lot of fun trying foods from different countries and Miss Perrett was especially surprised by how much we loved olives and feta cheese! We had a go at making our own tomato salsa which we enjoyed with tortilla crisps. At the end of the day we learned how easy it is to eat your 5 a day. We crammed spinach, banana and avocado into a yogurt smoothies and made adverts persuading people to do the same at home. Here's what we thought about our day!

I tried spinach and I loved it! - Ellie 5ZB


I would recommend a green smoothie as it's healthy, nice and nutritious - Isla 6RC

It was the first time I had tried avocados and I loved it - Evie 5ZB
