In Oak class we have started a new D&T unit of Cooking this term. Over the half term pupils will create their own fruit smoothie. After starting the unit by identifying food that are fruits and vegetables, we made links to our Science unit of plants and thought about what fruit and vegetables need to grow. In the next lesson pupils developed their skills, recognising the importance of food hygiene before chopping up different fruits, exploring the different textures and ways of chopping them safely. Pupils then enjoyed tasting them (using their senses to explore and describe) and discussing which fruit was their favourite.
