The Food – a fact of life Challenge activities have been written to support teachers not following the national curriculum for their specific country or those following a challenge or theme-based approach. However, they could be used in any Early Years setting or school across the UK.
The Challenges cover healthy eating, cooking and where food comes from and provide a wide range of activities that teachers can select depending on their pupils’ needs, age and abilities, and the time available.
Each Challenge presentation comprises:
- slides to present the Challenge to the class, including images, information and questions to stimulate pupil discussion and planning;
- a teachers' guide with opportunities for learning and a variety of pupil activities that can be completed individually or in groups.
The Challenges culminate in a final outcome, which could be paper based, such as a poster or display, a video or interactive activity, a recipe, menu or dish/range of dishes, depending on the theme of the Challenge.
An optional pupil certificate is available to download and personalise once the Challenge has been achieved.
The Challenge activities meet the Guidelines for producers and users of school education resources about food.
