    I am in year 1 in September and am doing the topic mentioned above. I wondered if anyone had any good ideas for trips relating to this topic? I'm in Birmingham btw.
    I thought about taking the chn to a pizza party (Italian link, LOL) at pizza hut where they get to make a pizza and then eat it but wondered if anyone had any better ideas??
    Thanks in advance.
  2. What about looking at a staple food that is common around the world such as bread and all the different forms - flat breads, foccacia, bagels, crumpets, fruit breads, rolls, sliced, wholemeal, croissants, tortillas, wraps etc, rice based wraps such a rice paper rolls...damper from here in Australia the list is probably endless. REasonable cheap to have nice big tasting day at school and perhaps some guessing games or naming competition or match the bread with the country.
  3. Hi
    A good story book to use is called The World Came To My Place Today. I have used this in the past with a large floor map and a bag with items of food (or pictures of it) for each child. The food links to the items in the story. As you read the story, the children place the food on the map on the country or continent it came from. You could also use flags and country / continent names for the children to place alongside the food item. To add some ICT you could use google earth to 'fly' from school to each place too.
    Have fun!

    Thanks everyone. I have lots of ideas already for the topic and have arranged for friends from other cultures to come and cook with the chn. It was a trip idea I was struggling with...allotment sounds good and will definitely look into buying that book suggested. Thanks.
