Let Us Eat Lettuce!


Posted by Miss Crowther | Posted in Literacy | Posted on July 23, 2015

Today we didn’t eat our normal lunch…or even have it at the normal time! We grated, sliced, diced, peeled and chopped a variety of fruits and vegetables before we crunched and munched our way through salad sandwiches and fruit salads.

Our regular blog followers will know that we are learning about procedural texts at the moment. What better way to learn than by actually following a procedure and writing about it afterwards!




Follow our procedures and you too can have a fruity feast and a super salad spread!

Yum! Sorry I missed this activity. What a great way to learn about procedural texts. I remember making sushi with some of you last year I think??? Hope you enjoyed the healthy lunch. See you soon. Mrs Hastie

Looks delicious. The only thing missing was beetroot from the sandwich. I would like to have tasted the end product. F you need a taster next time let me know!

Hello Mrs Laffan,

Thank you for commenting on our blog!

We enjoyed munching and crunching through our salad sandwiches and next time we will definitely tell you we are cooking.

If you were making a salad sandwich, what would you put in it and why?

We hope you keep commenting on our blog.

Hello everyone,

I really liked making the salad sandwich and fruit salad.

I can see:
* Bread
* Butter
* Cheese
* Lettuces
* Carrots
* Cucumbers
* Apples
* Oranges
* Bananas

It was really nice. Some people didn’t like it but I loved it!

Next time we should put beetroot in it because it would taste much better.

I would put everything we put in our salad sandwiches.

This is what I would put in my fruit salad:

What do you think about the salad sandwiches and fruit salads?
