Sapphire and Pearl Class used the book 'The World Came To My Place Today' by Jo Readman and Ley Honor Roberts as the starting point for their food topic. Where does the food we eat come from? The children kept a food diary and then discovered where the ingredients for different foods originated. The orange juice came from oranges grown on trees in warm, sunny places, like Spain and California. One of the children's favourite foods was pizza. The pizza base was made from flour, which is ground up grains of wheat. Wheat is grown on farms in places like Europe and North America.
The children also discovered and tasted foods popular in different countries and found out about foods linked to religious festivals.

What is Pancake Day?
Pancake Day (also known as Shrove Tuesday) is the last day before the period which Christians call Lent. It is traditional on this day to eat pancakes.
Why are Pancakes eaten on Shrove Tuesday?
Lent is a time of abstinence, of giving things up. So Shrove Tuesday is the last chance to indulge yourself, and to use up the foods that aren't allowed in Lent. Pancakes are eaten on this day because they contain fat, butter and eggs which were forbidden during Lent.
Children in Sapphire Class liked pancakes with sugar on top. All the children had a "flipping" good time.

Thanks to Mrs Haywood, the children tasted fruits from countries all around the world. Pearl Class designed and made a tasty fruit salad. Sapphire Class discovered how some bananas grow from a seed in Jamaica and then followed the journey from planting, harvesting and shipping the fruit to a supermarket near you.

Sapphire Class have created an imaginative play area called 'Audlem Cafe.' It is very expensive to eat there but lots of fun.
