Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

The Perfect Pizza.

To finish this term's topic "We Are What We Eat", we have become expert chefs and used all of the new knowledge we have learnt during our topic lessons to design and cook our very own pizzas!

Before designing our pizzas, we learnt all about the importance of a balanced diet and how it can help us to stay fit and healthy.

Did you know that we need to eat lots of vitamins and minerals to help our bodies to work properly?Carbohydrates to give our bodies energy, protein to help us to grow big and strong, dairy to keep our bones healthy and fat to give our bodies an extra energy boost when we need it!  We used the eat well plate to explore the foods in each of the food groups and decide what ingredients we could put on our pizza to ensure it is balanced.

After designing our pizzas (into some very funny faces),  we transformed our classroom into an Italian kitchen; put on our chefs hats and aprons and prepared to cook.

Firstly, we used a spoon to carefully spread the tomato puree evenly around the pizza base.












Secondly, we used our fingers to sprinkle the grated cheese around the pizza base. Some of us even used the cheese for hair!
Can you remember what you used the cheese for on your pizza?












After that we used the onions, mushrooms, ham, sweetcorn and peppers to bring our designs to life.
What ingredients did you use to make your face?











After cooking, our scrumptious pizzas were ready for us to enjoy.
We look forward to seeing what we will be cooking next!
