Our Planet Feeds Us!

We’ve all learned so much about our wonderful planet and this week we started thinking about how our planet feeds us! We thought of our favourite foods and where they come from; the land or the sea? We discovered that most of our favourites come from the land!

Over the coming days we’re going to be looking at how far our food travels to reach our plate so if you have any food labels that show the country of origin, please send these into school. See if you and your child can look through some of the food you have at home and on a world map try and find out which food has traveled the furthest to get to your home – leave a comment with what you discovered so we can plot this on our map at school!

    Abby pulled some food out of our fridge. We learnt that the potato’s came from Norfolk in England and we use them to make chips! The grapes we had in our fridge came from a South Africa and the blueberries came from Chile. The strawberries we had have come from Spain which is where Abby likes to go on holiday!

      Great! We’ll be able to add that to our world map!

    I have a cracking picture of Ciara helping me prepare some squid a few weeks ago (love seafood) and funnily enough that’s what the plans are for dinner this Friday! Must print the pic off and give it to her for school
