What's on the Menu? Check out Year 2's Restaurant

Food is essential. It gives us energy for life – but how much do we know about how food is produced and prepared? How is it packaged and how far does it travel before reaching our plates? What about food waste? What food is healthy for us and for our planet?

The children in Year 2 investigated this during the last few weeks. On Friday, they invited their parents in for their Exit Point to show them how much they had learned. The students had established their own restaurant where they served their parents a nice meal they had prepared for them.
