Food & Nutrition Project
Year 5 students from St Anne’s CE Primary school visited Altrincham College for a cross-curricular project this week. They have been looking at what is in food and how we digest it. After looking at nutrition and the new Eat-well Guide from the government, some pupils made a batch of delicious banana muffins whilst others took a sandwich and carried out a simulation of digestion using a pair of old tights – the result was messy but the whole thing fantastic fun!
They will return next week to consider the effect of nutrition on health in a PE session and apply everything they have learnt to choreograph a food, nutrition and digestion dance.
