We had a fantastic science lesson today, learning about how we can lead a healthier lifestyle and the importance of eating at least 5 portions of fruit and veg per day. We discovered how many teaspoons of sugar are in some of our favourite food and drinks and then created a bar graph to represent the data.

Did you know ...

A can of Coca Cola contains 9 teaspoons of sugar? An average chocolate bar contains 8 and a bag of skittles has 12!

The government recommends that a child aged between 7 - 10 years old should have no more than 7 teaspoons a day.

This week, we have been practising our sketching and painting skills to create these awesome Jungle Tigers.

The children used charcoal to draw the features of their tigers; water paints to decorate the background with some leaf printing and poster paints to create their stripes.
