Design Technology week
During Design Technology week Year 5 really embraced the challenge of 'Burgers'.
They looked at the various food chains that make and sell burgers and investigated their nutritional values.
Year 5 understand that burgers are ok for you in moderation and that there are healthy alternatives or adaptations that you can make. They understand that carbohydrates are made up of proteins and calories to give you energy. Over the course of the week they explored the various elements of a burger: patties; sauces; breads and sides. Through focused practical activities and taste-testing then developed their cooking skills and preferences.
Applying what they learnt, they have devised their own healthy burger plans to make after half-term.
