Healthy Fruit Salad

This term the children in Year 1 and Year 2 have designed their own healthy fruit salad as part of their work in Design & Technology. They thought a lot about what makes a healthy packed lunch, and agreed that fruit and vegetables are a very important part of a healthy diet. After writing a shopping list of ingredient that they would need, the children set about using the appropriate tools to prepare their fruit for their designs. They were careful in making sure that they followed the basic hygiene rules when handling and preparing food too. What a great job KS1!

Puppets – Textiles

Year 1 and Year 2 have been making their own puppets this term.  Firstly, they had to identify different types of puppets and label them correctly. They then designed their own hand puppets that could be used to tell a story.  After choosing the correct materials, the children used a sewing technique to join two pieces of felt together and then added the desired features to their puppets.  Once completed, they evaluated their designs.

We think they’re brilliant! Well done KS1.
