In D&T, children in Year 1 have been hard at work creating their very own fruit skewers. To start, we brainstormed several fruits and described how they looked. Then, we began to plan! Choosing a range of fruit in various colours to create a personal fruit skewers.
Once we had a plan in place, we started refining our cutting skills. Our main concern was safety, therefore we all utilised the “claw grip” to protect our fingertips. Before cutting fruit, we first cut clay.
We then created a shopping list. We added our quantities using maths to estimate how much we would need for each fruit.
We then started chopping!
Finally, in the shade, we enjoyed our delicious fruit skewers.
Well done Lion and Panther class!
