This week, the Year 1 & 2 children started their Design and Technology topic for this term – “Food Glorious Food!”. We kicked it off by having a really close look at some different vegetables in class. The children had to make some careful sketches of the vegetables. Then I cut them in half so that the children could see what the vegetables looked like inside. We also spent some time using our senses to explore the vegetables.
Over the next few weeks, the children will learn lots of cookery skills including peeling, cutting and grating. They will also do some tasting of different vegetable products followed by some research to find out which foods are the most popular. Based on all of this information, they will then use everything that they have learnt to design, make and eat their own product! We can’t wait to see the final results already! 😋
