As part of our Design Technology Curriculum, Year 1 have made crudités and a yoghurt and mint dip!

The children investigated healthy and unhealthy snacks on the market. They tasted different vegetables to see which they wanted to include and enjoyed creating their final pieces in small groups. They evaluated what they liked and spoke about any changes they would make if they were to make it again. 


Here are some instructions written by some of our Year 1 children!

- Knife
