A new Science topic – Growing and Cooking!

Thursday 06 June 2024

This half term, the children in  Year 1, are learning about growing and cooking in science. They will be exploring the difference between fruit and vegetables and where they come from. They will also be preparing a simple meal!

Today, the class started by learning about the difference between fruit and vegetables. They recalled how plants are grown and discovered which parts of the plant we can eat.

We investigated the differences and similarities between a strawberry and a carrot. The children thought about smell, taste and texture.

The children identified that the main different between a fruit and a vegetable is that fruit has seeds. Which means that cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes are in fact fruits!
