In English we have been foucusing on the story Handa’s Surprise and in Geography we are learning about continents of the world and hot and cold countries.
So, for Design and Technology we made fruit kebabs. First we talked about where we thought the fruit was grown in the world and the children realised that most of the fruit we were using needed to be grown in a warmer country. The countries seemed to all be close to the equator.
Next the children tasted the fruit to help them decide which fruit they would like on their fruit kebab. They then designed what they wanted it to look like and practised some peeling and chopping skills.
The children discovered how to prepare each fruit and enjoyed making and EATING their yummy Kebab.
Well done Year 1!
