Fruity Fun!


The Sunflowers have really enjoyed making fruit kebabs and fruit smoothies! We spent some time learning about the benefits of healthy eating and how a balanced diet is good for our bodies. We also spoke about how fruit can help our skin, hair, teeth and nails – the children were amazed by this and seemed to really take in everything they were learning which was brilliant! The Sunflowers used their mathematical skills to count the fruit pieces, talking also about the different shapes and sizes that they could see.

We used our knowledge on hygiene and how we prepare ourselves before interacting with food and the children were filled with lots of excitement when using the blender (safely with supervision). They were fascinated by how it changed the consistency of the different types of fruit! Overall the Sunflowers really enjoyed this activity!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xx
