We watched videos about puberty in class t0day. One of the main things that was mentioned was having a healthy diet in order to help your body cope with the changes it will go through. So, I think it w0uld be really helpful if we had some information about what you all eat an drink during a typical week of your life. We’re not going to pick on anyone for eating badly, we’re just going to use the information for our inquiries over the next few weeks.
Create a visual to show what you typically eat and drink every week. Make sure your visual answers the following questions:
- What do you eat for breakfast everyday?
- What do you eat for lunch on a school day? At the weekend?
- What do you eat at night?
- What kind of snacks do you eat?
- What and when do you drink the most?
- How much water do you drink?
Make your visual good to look at and full of useful information. Create on a computer or by hand.
What information were you surprised by?
What other things could be more complex than you thought?
What could go wrong if canteens were not well-organized?
As part of our unit about ideas and actions, we are watching the work that Jamie Oliver is doing in America.
Here’s the last part of Episode One of the Food Revolution. Watch it at home tonight if you have time:
Were your predictions about the children correct?
What challenge does Jamie face?
You need to cook a dish that you love, and that you would like everybody else in 6SS to try. Of course, you can have adult help, but get adults to teach you, not do it for you. The best is to get them to teach you one day, and then make it yourself the next day.
Criteria for the food:
- Savoury food only – 6GD are preparing dessert
- Try and cook things that are healthy and rich in vegetables
- Think about how your fo0d is presented – make it look good as well as taste good
- Don’t be too ambitious, simple food is often the most delicious
- Don’t cook too much, just enough for each person to try
- Make something that is easy to warm up, or doesn’t need to be warmed up
Make a comment to tell us what you are thinking about cooking and why…
This is the real way to make mochi. Remember the game we played in music, well this video shows the real way with real sticks.
We started off our “Brain Food Experiment” this week.
What did you think? Did it work for you? What effect did it have on your work and your levels of energy? What kind of food did you bring? What will you bring next week? What kind of food did you decide was not a good idea?
For the hydroponics I’m going to plant the small seedlings on thursday. I need your help to do this. I will appreciate if anyone comes and help. It will only take a few minutes and we won’t get wet. This crop will be Thai vegetables so it will grow quickier than salad so we can harvest on the last week of school.
Hi everyone, on Thursday I am going to harvest this lot of hydroponics vegetables. This crop is not big because of the heat so all the vegetables will be given to people instead of selling. Please come and help me afterschool, it won’t take long you guys can just bring a bag or container to take some of vegetables home and eat them in return. Also on Friday please come and help me clean the hydroponics kit afterschool.
I am arranging to go to the hydroponics farm. I recommend everyone to visit the farm. People who want to be the hydroponics volunteer should also go. I also want people who are already the volunteers commit to help and continue on this project. If other people want to join the hydroponics group I would also appreciate it but the volunteers will have to be commit to do this job. If we have enough people, Mr Adrian can arrange for everyone to go together. The time is probably Saturday morning (Next week) but I’m not sure yet. I just want to know who might be interested to come. (Both parents and students)
