Kia Ora and welcome to Te Rōpū Ngākaunui's blog! We are a year 4/5 class at Gilberthorpe School in Christchurch. This is a place where we can share our learning with you. We would love for you to comment and check out our individual blogs to see what we get up to. Enjoy!
We have been learning about Healthy foods as part of the Food For Thought programme. This was delivered to us by Mikaela who worked for the Heart Foundation. On day one we had to sort out foods that would eat everyday, and ones that we would only eat occasionally. Chocolate was an occasional food and fruit was everyday. We looked at cereal boxes and learned how to read labels to see what types of nutrients were in our foods. The next day Mikaela took us to Pak n Save at the hub. We got into groups with wonderful parent helpers and looked at breads and cereals, snack foods, muesli bars, and produce. We checked our foods in each category and looked at whether they were everyday or occasional foods. We even got a $60 grocery voucher for Ngakaunui and a lunchbox each. It was pretty cool to go to the supermarket on a school day!
