Eat More Fruit and Vegetables!

Date: 22nd Jun 2021 @ 8:10am

In Design Technology this term, we are working towards designing and preparing our own healthy meals. This week we had fun learning alll about how to prepare fruit and vegetables hygienically and safely. We demonstrated excellent knowledge of when and how to use sharp knives (only with the help of an adult!), and we handled and prepared some different fruit in small groups. Our challenge was to prepare the fruit for eating by washing,peeling and cutting with a serrated knife. We also had a go at finding different ways of cutting fruits and vegetables, e.g. in strips, sections, etc. We showed that we can be sensible when using a knife to cut fruit. We also worked extremely well in our pairs. We can't wait to make our own fruit salads in a few weeks' time!
