In Y5 we’ve been looking at Data Handling. Almost all of Y5’s worked independently on an inquiry. Our Science topic for Autumn1 was ‘keeping healthy’ and we linked our inquiry to our Science topic. We tried to find out if Upper-KS2’s packed lunches have been healthy.
In our school we had a Food Awareness program two years ago alongside healthy eating workshops – even for Parents too. Last year’s inquiry during Autumn was also based on this topic and we discovered the packed lunches were healthy.
Our current Y5’s worked on more in depth questions. We discovered that our packed lunches are STILL healthy, BUT not our drinks! More than 50% of our packed lunch children – in Upper KS2 – are having sugary drinks! Wow, we need to deal with this now. We will definitely report back making sure children know what a healthy drink is. Watch this space, as we will soon upload some of our work for you to enjoy.
This is Harnoor’s Bar Chart with her results on the data collected for Y5’s. Next time when Harnoor has more time, she will colour her bars, so it’s more visual to the eye and easily readable.
