On Thursday, children in Year 6 spent the day focusing on DT as part of this half term's DT topic: Global Food. During the day they took part in activities which allowed them to discuss and find out about ingredients from different parts of the world; learn about what makes a healthy and balanced diet and the nutritional values of food; and learning about rice as a staple food, including how to cook rice. There was even an opportunity for some maths to take place when the children did an activity linked to portion sizes, plus reading and understanding labels giving nutritional values on foods. As well as these activities, the children all had the opportunity to learn and apply a range of cooking skills and techniques as they made three Mexican dishes: Salsa, Guacamole and Quesadillas which they were then able to eat and evaluate at the end of the day. Later on this term we hope to focus on a different country as part of the topic.
