What a great afternoon Year 2 have had today! As part of our creative topic, the children discussed the importance of a healthy balanced diet. We watched a couple of clips from the film ‘Matilda’, which our creative topic is based around, and talked about the foods we could see that we should eat a little bit of or a lot of. We then prepared to make fruit straws by firstly cleaning our hands and then carefully cutting pieces of fruit into halves and placing it onto a straw. The children could design it the way they wanted which they loved doing. As a small treat, the children, along with an adult, drizzled a small amount of melted chocolate onto the fruit straws to highlight the fact we can have a small amount of chocolate in our diets – but not too much. The children made the decision as to whether to eat their fruit straws straight away or to take them home – some children could not wait to tuck in. We had a lovely afternoon followed by watching the end of our creative focus, Matilda. Well done, Year 2.
