Primary 7 Healthy Living Context for Learning

Throughout this term Primary 7 have been engaged in a range of lessons learning how to live a healthy lifestyle.

The pupils took part in lessons including:

  • What different dietary requirements people may have depending on age, religion, medical conditions, choices (eg vegan) and culture.
  • How to read and understand food labels.
  • Sustainable living.
  • Cost of food/ how to decide where to purchase food.
  • Social etiquette
  • Hygiene when baking.

The pupils were split into groups and given a family scenario with a variety of needs.  They had to understand the nutritional and dietary needs and then create a 3 course meal for the family.

To bring the learning together, the pupils took part in a social meal.  They had to show appropriate social etiquette and the pupils shared and justified their recipes to others in a presentation format.  The classes baked scones which they ate at the social meal.
