This week saw the last group of Swans go shopping to Sainsbury’s as part of our Healthy Eating Topic. The ten children went via mini bus to Sainsbury’s shopping list in hand. Collectively they bought potatoes, pasta twists, cheese, tomato paste, frozen peas, carrots and sweetcorn. Each pair used their money to pay for the goods at the self-serve check out.
Once we returned to school from our shopping trip the children made cheesy mash potato with peas, carrots & sweetcorn and a tomato pasta dish with peas, carrots & sweetcorn. All the children tried both dishes with just two children saying they didn’t like it… can’t be bad. Hopefully eating healthily rubs off!
On Wednesday afternoon the swans went out onto the field to take part in sport Relief. We had to match the sport word to the sport picture. We even acted out the different sports and went for a run around the edge of the field which was in keeping with our keeping healthy topic!
As part of our Healthy Eating Topic, on Tuesday, a group of 10 swans from Reception went via mini bus to Sainsbury’s. Each pair had a shopping list and some money so they could buy some fruit ready to make fruit kebabs back at school. They walked around the store looking at different isles to find healthy and unhealthy foods. There was lots of good discussion. Children also looked at the different prices of things and recognised the £ and pence sign. Once they had found the items on their shopping list they used their money to pay for the goods at the self-serve check out.
When we returned to school from our shopping trip to Sainsbury’s the children made fruit kebabs with a yoghurt dip. Everyone tried one. We even took some round to other members of staff to try. Everyone said they were delicious!
On Wednesday the 2nd group of 10 children went to Sainsbury’s. They were buying vegetables ready to make vegetable soup once back at school. Once they had finished their shopping we walked to the number 50 bus stop and caught a double decker bus back to school. For some of the children this was the first time they had been on a bus. The last group of children will be going shopping next Wednesday 21st so watch this space!
We talked about the different vegetables that we had bought and then had a go at chopping them up for our soup. We put them into a big pan and added our vegetable stock. Then we put it on the hop to cook. Some of the soup was blended and some of the soup stayed lumpy. All the children had a taste.
