We had our first DT lesson today, and during this lesson we were talking all about different fruits. We spoke about our likes and dislikes, how different fruits smell and then we even got to try a range of fruit: oranges, pineapple, strawberries, green and red apples, bananas and blueberries. Some of us tried pieces of fruit for the first time, and absolutely loved it! We discussed the words 'sweet' and 'sour', and as a class we decided that pineapple and blueberries were the favourites and might be considered when eventually planning and making our own smoothies.
During our DT lesson today, we recapped the different fruits that we tried last lesson and which were the best, and we also spoke about what other fruits we liked too. Then we had the opportunity to try 3 different smoothies, but these were mystery smoothies! The children had to try them without knowing what was in them, and then vote for their favourite at the end, and only then were the ingredients revealed to them. The highest vote went to smoothie number 3, which had apples, bananas, blackberries, oranges, blueberries and also beetroot in it! The children were shocked to say the least that they had drank something with beetroot in it!
