In year 3 we have enjoyed a 40-minute session learning about the importance of a varied diet and how to get their five a day. We discussed portion size and how this differs for everyone and some of us even enjoyed cycling the bike to make our own healthy smoothies for us all to try.

Healthy Eating
This week we had the smoothie lady in to talk to us about healthy eating. She brought in her smoothie bike and Israel had to pedal to make it work. We all got to taste it too! We are all going to try harder to eat our 5-a-day!

Smoothie Time!
Year 5 had a great time with Sharon, from Change 4 Life, learning about healthy eating and why it is important to eat healthily. They then pedalled the bike to power a blender to make a delicious, fruity smoothie!

Science Experiment
We came up with the following conclusion:

As the yeast feeds on the sugar, it produces carbon dioxide. With no place to go but up, this gas slowly fills the balloon.

From our results we think that yeast works best with warm water.
