Our year 2 class learnt all about the different foods groups and how important it is to eat a balanced diet. The children created their own healthy packed lunch as they thought about the various food groups and the nutrients that they need. They really enjoyed thinking about what they eat and how important exercise is in keeping our bodies healthy.
I will send home a homework sheet over half-term if you have time to complete a food and exercise diary with the children.
As part of our ongoing science lessons on plants, our class planted some cress seeds, which we are going to observe in different conditions. We predicted what we thought may happen when we change the variables of our experiment. We also thought about the life cycle of a plant and looked further into how plants grow and what they need for survival.
please see the information below regarding the food bank collection.
