The nursery staff team like to seek the voice of the key children and follow their current interests and add this to the planning and activities for the children. The pre school children had been discussing about healthy choices and reading books from the leading library all about healthy cooking and making smoothies. The children asked if they could make some at nursery to try, so the group helped create a shopping list of things we would need. They also shared ideas on how we would cut the cut and talked about germs and having good hygiene practice and what this meant to them.
The activity was a great success and the children really enjoyed selecting and chopping the fruit for themselves, but especially enjoyed using the blender to make the fruit into a smoothie..
