On Friday 15th December Year 2 held a very successful Healthy Snack Café. We have been working towards it all term by learning about food groups and what is and isn’t healthy. We chose our own recipes using healthy ingredients like wholemeal flour, fruit, vegetables and honey instead of sugar.
We worked in groups and each group was responsible for making a different healthy snack:
Brooke, Kaiden, Taya, Mason, Kai and Harley made Cheerio cakes.
Cerrys, Esmay, Zaynab, Kerris and David made fruity flapjack.
Leo, Callum, Callum, Ryan and KeXin made vegetable pizza.
Amelia, Scarlette, Frankie, Dayne, Lewis and Jani made banana bread.
Lola, Keelie, Nyeema, Frankie-Dee, Shona and OIiver made blueberry muffins.
We followed the recipes carefully to make the food. We then made signs and set up our tables. We practised how much things would cost and how to give change if customers needed it. We also practised our selling and customer service skills!
The afternoon was a great success. Parents were very supportive and many spent a small fortune! All the people who came to our café were very impressed with our confident selling skills.
The very good news is that even though the café was mainly a celebration of our learning we also made just under £50! Thank you so much to all the parents and visitors who spent their money buying our healthy snacks. We are going to have a hard think about what to spend it on over Christmas and then have a vote in the new year. We will let you know what we choose. Well done Toucans!
