Introduction: exploring delicious fruits and vegetables

In this lesson, we will introduce the topic preparing fruit and vegetables. We will explore a range of different fruits and vegetables to support children in identifying and naming a range of fruits and vegetables. We will then carry out an investigative and evaluative task. We will carry out a taste tasting exercise to allow children to say what they like and dislike and make simple judgements. This lesson includes some physical activity and equipment beyond pen, paper or pencil. Please make sure your child is adequately supervised.
