Food, A Balanced Diet, was our DT day topic in Year 2. The children were given the task of designing, making and evaluating a healthy snack. Prior to designing, the children explored how sugar was made made and were shocked at the amount of hidden sugars in fruit juices and fizzy drinks.
Year 2 explored the 5 food groups and ensured when designing they had a healthy balance, using cranberry sauce as a treat!
When making their wraps, the children learnt the bridge and claw cutting method to cut their vegetables.
Once made, the children evaluated their wraps, for smell, appearance and taste and thought about what they would change when making a wrap next time.
