On Tuesday 17th 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 (we researched for ourselves using swiggle) 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. We went to Tesco and shopped for our ingredients! It was very exciting to try and find everything on our shopping list. We had to use our Maths skills to make sure we had enough money!
Back in school, we followed the recipes carefully to make the food. We learnt how to cut things safely and how to measure ingredients accurately.
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 over 30! 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 and then have a vote. We will let you know what we choose. Well done Toucans!
This week in Circle Time we thought about the value word ‘thoughtfulness’. We shared some ideas of how we have been thoughtful:
Naz – I was thoughtful when I gave Maarya my scarf. Anaiyah – I was thoughtful when I helped my brother when he was crying. Sammy – I was thoughtful to my Mum by going to bed when she wanted me to. Zi Yan – I was thoughtful when I gave out Christmas cards. Helen – I was thoughtful when my sister was scared in the night. Scarlett – I was thoughtful when my sister did good dancing on stage because I said well done to her.
In our Music lessons we are preparing for the Carol service at the end of term. We are learning a song called Ho Ho Ho and are really enjoying it! We are singing, rapping and even playing the glockenspiels. We are getting better every week but it is tricky to play the notes in the correct order.
