Spring 1 - Balanced Diets

Balanced Diets

This half term, our topic is all about Balanced Diets. This topic is mainly linked to DT, Science and Art. We will be cooking our own healthy stir fries. In Science, we will be looking at the digestive system, teeth and food chains. In Art, we will have the opportunity to draw 3D and explore different tones.

Our Learning

Today, in the year 4 Bubble, the children sorted foods into the different food groups.
