Designing and Making Healthy Sandwiches
As part of our 'Super-fit Me' topic, we found out about healthy foods and how to have a balanced diet. Before we designed our sandwiches, we had a taster session where we tasted different breads, spreads, fillings and salads so we could choose a good balance of foods for our sandwich. Our challenge was to try a new healthy food that we don't usually eat at home and to try new combinations of foods in our sandwich.
Before 'Absolutely Catering' came for our workshop, we had chosen the foods for our sandwich and drawn what it would look like. Making the sandwich was great fun, because we had to put it together ourselves and make it look appetising. We looked at how Mrs Clifton presents her sandwiches in the school kitchen for some tips. When we had made the sandwich we thought about how successful it was and how it could be improved. You can see from our photos what a fun day it was and we all had a go at trying something new and making it look as tasty as possible.
Art Work in the style of Matisse
The children in Year 2 posed like athletes, made drawings of mannequins in similar poses and cut out their collages. We arranged our cutouts on paper and stuck them in place, just as Henri Matisse did when he used this 'drawing with scissors' style.
Our wonderful collages are on display in the cloakroom for all our families to enjoy.
