Uplands Infant School are taking part in the Connecting Classrooms Project which aims to make children more aware of the food they eat and of hunger around the world and its effects on children, old age people, and differently able people from UK and Nepal.
This project also explores the local and global food produced around Nepal and the UK.
Through this collaborative project, the students of both countries will develop their global citizenship, creativity and imagination skills.
Our partner school in Nepal is called Noble Academy and the topic of our first meeting was ‘My School. My Pride’. The children started off by introducing themselves and then we showed and discussed the different areas in our school such as the playground, continuous provision, classroom displays, zen areas.
Me, My House and My Family
Food on my Plate
We looked at the different food groups on the food pyramid and learnt all about healthy eating and the importance of having a balanced diet. We also kept a food journal of what we ate during the week.
Special Festival | Special Food
The children made a list of special food that is thoroughly enjoyed during the Holy Month of Ramadan. They then prepared a recipe collaboratively with their parents and this was shared with our partner school. Why not try one of their recipes and let us know how they tasted!
Food from Local to Global
The children visited Manor Farm and interviewed Farmer Craig and Farmer Nicola to find out what food items grow in their farm. They were so amazed by all the fresh fruits and vegetables grown locally!
