Children are asked to produce a piece of art around one of five themes with a piece of writing of up to 400 words to accompany it. The themes are as follows;

 

Picturing faith

God’s Good Earth?

Inspiring

Lesson 3 – Healthy eating

What does healthy eating mean to you? Are some foods more healthier than others?

A healthy, balanced diet supports physical development, improves mood and keeps bugs at bay. Foods rich in vitamins and nutrients, like fruit, vegetables and whole grains, give children the fuel they need to develop both physically and mentally. Healthy eating also boosts our immune systems.

 

Art – fruit art

Let’s have some fun!! To link with our Science topic on healthy eating can you make some art from fruit??

Have a look at these pictures for inspiration. We’d love to see your creations on Dojo! 🙂
