A topic eagerly looking forward to by all the pupils and teachers alike, the children were invited to bring in food special to their home countries to share with their friends. We sampled delicious food from several countries including Hong Kong, Scotland, Germany, the United States of America, China and Australia. It truly highlighted the wonderful international community here at the British School of Beijing, Sanlitun.
After trying new foods from around the world, the children completed a worksheet where they drew a picture of the foods they had tried, identified the countries where they came from and wrote a few sentences describing the taste.
Over this term, the children in Year 2 will be learning about the different food groups, the importance of a balanced diet and exercise and writing their own poems about food.
Who knows? We may have some future Michelin starred chefs and restaurateurs in our midst!
