5-a-day (Key Stage 1)

1 Hour (for Year 1 to Year 2)

Are you getting enough fruit and veg?  Children learn about 5 a day by sorting different foods into those which count towards your 5 a day, and those which don’t.  They then make a collage placemat to take home to remind them how to get their 5-a-day.
