Nutrition WOW Day
Last Friday, Year 3 enjoyed their Wow Day with the theme on ‘Nutrition’. The day was filled with many activities such as, learning how to eat a rainbow, creating a daily menu which contained all the food groups, writing an acrostic poem on healthy eating and making pitta pizzas. They learnt that different coloured foods play different roles in keeping our bodies healthy. To name a few of the benefits, white vegetables help our immune system, Yellow/orange vegetables protect our eyes, red protect our skin, purple improve our memory and green give us healthy bones. We had a fun day dressed as chefs and the most popular part of the day was making pitta pizzas. The aim was to eat a rainbow by choosing a variety of vegetables to top their pizza, like yellow and red peppers, sweetcorn, mushroom, 2 different cheeses, tomatoes and fresh basil. We also took the opportunity to provide the children with scales to measure some of the ingredients. This was to give prior learning for their maths lessons on mass in a few weeks. Thank you for support and to the parents who gave their time to help in the morning.
