Hands on healthy eating lesson for Reception!

Thorpe House is a healthy school and as such, it’s important we teach the boys why we should eat healthily and how we can do it.

As part of their harvest festival celebrations and our healthy eating topic, Tesco came into school yesterday to introduce Reception to fruit from around the world, much of which they had never tasted before.  Lots of new, exciting vocabulary buzzed around the room as they discussed the taste and textures of each of the exotic fruits, some of which they liked, some of which weren’t so popular!

Next, using a large map of the world, the boys tracked how far the journey was from the countries of origin to Gerrards Cross and it was interesting to see how surprised they were at how far some of the fruit had travelled!

Tesco kindly donated a fruit hamper at the end of their visit which some of the Senior boys helped us to deliver to a local home for the elderly.
