Comparing England to rural Zimbabwe and trying Sadza (cooked cornmeal that is the staple food in Zimbabwe ).
This week we have been looking at what it means to be healthy. We have discussed 5 ways of to stay healthy - food (plenty of fruit and vegetables), water, exercise, sleep and cleanliness. During the week we read and watched the animated story of Handa's Surprise and discovered different tropical fruits; banana, avocado, guava, passion fruit, mango, pineapple, orange and tangerine. We tried these fruits in class and our favourite fruit was the orange!
We also enjoyed participating in some physical exercise, dancing. Copying the moves on the interactive white board. It was lots of fun, especially when we knew the words to the songs too!
The children also liked playing the healthy foods game, rolling the dice and moving around the board, collecting all the foods they need for a healthy meal.

Thank you very much to TK and Liam's mum, we found Zimbabwe on a map of Africa, we learnt how to make peanut butter from scratch, we learnt all about Zimbabwean culture, we found out what popcorn is made out of, we played instruments and sang along to African music, we listened to a traditional story and we saw how they traditionally carry children on their backs to help them sleep. We learnt so much and we had lots of fun!
