On Wednesday 29th November, Year 1 and 2 hosted a picnic for our Reception children as part of their food and nutrition DT unit.

Throughout the unit, the children worked carefully to plan, design, create and evaluate different picnic foods in order to find the perfect lunchtime snack for the Reception children. Whilst practicing their skills, the children followed a design criteria which stated their picnic must have: 1 savory item, 1 sweet item and they must include all aspects of the eat well plate.

After testing and evaluating different recipes, the children decided on a pasta salad and strawberry flapjack as their final design for the picnic. The Reception children thoroughly enjoyed their picnic trip and there were lots of clean plates!
