Healthy Eating and Making a Stew

In Science we have been learning about how our heart works and how to be healthy.

First we tried to name different body parts, then we looked at how de-oxygenated and oxygenated blood traveled around the body, Practically, we demonstrated how the blood flowed. Using red food colouring for the oxygenated blood and blue for the de-oxygenated.

Then we learnt  about our pulse and what makes a healthy heart. It was hard to find our pulse sometimes. After some time we realised that our resting heart rate increased when we did exercise. 

After that we learnt about healthy eating. We learnt different food groups: carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins,  fiber, healthy fats, calcium and minerals. Using this information we had learnt we picked ingredients to make a stew. 

We  wrote a shopping list, and once Miss C-G had bought the ingredients we started preparing the stew.

We enjoyed cutting all of the ingredients, even if the onions made us cry.
The stew tasted amazing and a lot of teachers were drawn in by the smell, and wanted to try it.
