In DT this half term, Year 3 are learning about seasonality.
Our learning goal was: Can I explain what seasonality is? Seasonality of food refers to the times of the year (the seasons) when a given type of food is at its peak, either in terms of harvest or flavour. We learnt that not all fruits and vegetables grow in Britain because of our climate. We used a world map to help us learn about the different climatic zones and which fruit and vegetables grow in each.
As well as learning the theory, Year 3 also got their first experience in the cooking room this year! We learnt about good food hygiene and recapped our knowledge of the bridging technique to cut bananas, strawberries and melon to make a delicious and seasonal Japanese fruit kebab. Stay tuned to find out how our fruit crumbles went!
