Y3 Science – Food groups

As part of our new Learning Journey ‘Fantastic Food and Brilliant Bodies’ we found out about the 5 food groups: dairy, protein, carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables and fats and sugars. As scientists, we went on a treasure hunt to find lots of different foods and sort them into the right food group. We discussed how some foods can belong to more than one group. Finally, we investigated the function of each food group, for example protein helps to repair our body and help it grow.
