Year 2 Moves from Toys to Food
It has been an exciting time in Year 2. Just last week, they finished their IPC unit Toys with a visit from a puppet theatre. This week, saw them start their new unit 'Food' with an exciting Entry Point.
At the beginning of a new IPC unit we have an Entry Point, which provides the 'wow' factor and gets children excited and motivated to learn about their new unit. In Year 2, they held an international food fair. Not only did the children have to bring food from their home country to share with their classmates, but they also had to prepare some information about the food which they presented to the class.
Each class had a sumptuous feast in their room with a huge variety of food from all the different countries of our children. We had sushi from Japan, rice and daal from India, cheese pie from Serbia, shortbread from Scotland, spring rolls from China to name but a few. The children were not only incredibly proud of the food they had brought in, but were also very open-minded about trying foods from other countries. What a great way to help develop international mindedness!
