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.
