A Tasty Day
We taste-tested some fruits and vegetables today. Some of them, we already eat at home, or have tried before. Some of them, we had never heard of! All of The Smarties tried every single sample that Mrs N gave us, even if we were nervous to try them. We're glad we did, because we discovered some new healthy foods that we liked. Pomegranates, broccolini and snow peas were some of our favourites, but most people liked almost everything!
We illustrated each food on our sheet. Our drawings were very detailed! We then rated each fruit, according to how much we liked it. We sent a little checklist to our mums and dads, to let them know which foods we'd like them to get for us at home. We now have some interesting new fruits and vegetables that we could put in our lunchboxes.
We've also been learning a dance for our assembly next week. We've chosen the Alvin and the Chipmunks song, Shake Your Groove Thing, because we LOVE it. It's one of the songs we use for "brain breaks" when we've been working hard in class. Some of our dance moves are coming from this video.
It was another busy, but fun day in our classroom!
Love from The Smarties and Mrs N
