Week Ten 15.06.20
Read Oliver’s Fruit Salad to your child. This book is about a little boy whose grandfather grows fruit. Oliver believes that his grandfather’s fruit is the best; however, he will never eat any fruit. In the book, Oliver helps make a colourful fruit salad and through this experience Oliver finds that fruit is “YUMMY!”
Over the week you could keep a diary of all the healthy food you eat. You could draw pictures or write a list. Remember to put how many of each fruit/veg that you eat as well. What foods should we eat a lot of? This is a great time to look at the colour codes on the food packaging. Count each group to see which has the most and which has the least.
Can you design and make your own fruit pots
There was once an artist called Arcimboldo who painted different fruit and vegetables to make faces!
Create a self-portrait of yourself by drawing fruit as your features. For example, you could use grapes for eyes and a banana for your nose! What fruit or veg could you use for your hair?
You can draw, paint or create a collage by cutting out pictures of food from magazines or printed from the internet.
Understanding the World: Growing seeds.
Have you got any seeds at home that you could grow? What will you need to do to care for your seeds? Maybe you could even make a cress egg head. If you don’t have any seeds maybe you could do an experiment of what happens when you keep a potato on your windowsill for a week and another one in a dark place. What do you think will happen to the potatoes?
