Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


Today, you are going to be planning a healthy meal for you to cook with an adult next week on Tuesday 16th February.  


Task 1 

From what you have learnt yesterday, place the different food and drink into the correct food groups. This sheet is in Learning Resources. 


Task 2  

Plan your meal for next week! In line with healthy eating and having a balanced diet, your meal next week must include at least 2 portions of fruit or vegetables. Your learning also involves preparing and cooking a savoury dish, using a heat source where appropriate. This is to be completed with adult supervision only. Ask an adult to help you with some inspiration when you are planning your meal. Think about what food you may already have in your house that could be used next week.  


Click on the link below if you would like some ideas and recipes for a meal to cook with your adult. 

You could cook a pasta dish, rice dish, fajitas, risotto, soup and much more. 


Once you have decided on a savoury meal that has at least 2 portions of fruit and vegetables and requires a heat source (with adult supervision), fill out the ‘DT - Meal Plan’ sheet. 


We look forward to seeing all of your plans of your delicious meals!
