Food for Thought - Shared Healthy Lunch

As a follow-up to our class trip to New World last week during the "Food for Thought" programme, we were generously given a voucher to purchase food to make a shared healthy lunch for the class.

We made delicious filled rolls with either ham or chicken, together with lettuce, tomato, cucumber, grated carrot and cheese.  We then finished this off with fruit kebabs with banana, apple, kiwifruit and marshmallows (a wee treat!).

This was a great experience for the class and was very enjoyable!

Trip to New World

As part of the "Food for Thought" programme, Room 16 walked down to New World Belfast yesterday afternoon and carried out activities where they familiarised themselves with reading the labels on food packaging in order to determine what foods are suitable as an "everyday" food or an "occasional" food.  The children have become experts at identifying foods which are healthy for them to eat.

At the end of the trip the children were given a free lunch box and a magnetic planner to go on their fridge at home.

As a follow-up to this trip we will be today planning a healthy lunch for the class.  New World have very generously gifted us a $60 voucher with which to purchase the food items for this lunch. On Monday we will be making a shared healthy lunch, which we are really looking forward to!

Teach Me Tuesday - Amy

As part of "Teach Me Tuesday", Amy taught the students in Room 16 how to write their names in Mandarin.  The students really enjoyed seeing what their names looked like in another language and to have a go at writing them in Mandarin.
