This is our third lesson looking at food groups in the 'eat well plate' and how important it is to have a varied diet.  Last week we looked at where our fruit and vegetables come from.

This week I would like you to plan your own healthy salad or soup!

Have a think about what ingredients you would like to include to make your salad or soup as healthy... and as tasty as you can! Then next week I would like you to create your salad or soup!

Below are some healthy and tasty salad recipes I have found - these might give you some ideas!

This terms Science topic is ‘Animals including Humans’.

 Last week we looked at how exercise is good for our bodies and we had a try at some different exercises. Thank you for your research!

This week’s Science is about noticing that animals, including humans have offspring that turn into adults.

Your first activity this week is to choose an animal. Draw how it looks when it is a baby and how it looks when it is an adult. Then describe how you animal changes as it grows.
