As part of Healthy Eating Week, Red and Blue class took part in a fruit workshop this afternoon.
They had a look at the outside of a variety of fruit and predicted what colour the fruit would be inside. They were surprised that a dragon fruit was white and black inside and that a cantaloupe was orange inside.
They then had the option to try some fruit including dragon fruit, apple, blueberries, star fruit, grapefruit and take part in a lime challenge, eating it without pulling a face.
We watched as 2 children from each class rode a bike to blend a smoothie which they got to try later.
We asked what they thought of the workshop
