I start my placement next week so will have to figure out best way to do it but is it asking me to do cooking with them? cutting and sticking??? reading a book? bringing in fruit and veg to try? I am clueless and don't know where to even start and I don't understand what it means by there must be two instances of this plan to pass the assignment?? Help!!!

Hi Rachael I work as a TA I wondered if I could help. :) the healthy eating doesn't always mean cooking etc how about this 2 boxes one healthy and one unhealthy and in the middle a box of plastic fruit and junk food then the children have to make the active decision as to whether it is healthy or unhealthy and put in the right box. Whilst doing this discuss with the children why they think it's healthy unhealthy and what the different food do to our bodies e.g. Sugar rots teeth etc. Hope this helps

I would say that the course is asking to deliver it as you see fit. The only trouble with cooking is the logistics and how it is set out etc and school policies in regards to cooking activities e.g allergies and parental consent x

Hi
I did fruit kebabs with my children. They cut up the fruit an put on cocktail sticks to make fruit kebabs. I also read oliver fruit salad and talked about different types of fruit and favourites. The children got to feel the textures of the fruit and smells. Hope this helps x

Hi for this activity I made fruit kebabs in small groups of five children at a time. I bought the fruit and sticks but the placement setting reimbursed me. We spoke about the taste, textures and names of the fruit. X

I do wish my tutor would respond to my question, my tutor name has appeared to have changed since I started the course a week ago, I asked the first tutor AND the second, still no response! Doesn't give me much confidence about support on my course! Thank god for this forum and all you very helpful people!

its the way the questions are worded that confuse everyone. it means you do the same activity twice. as its a reflective account, so my guess is the things you saw that didnt go so well, they are expecting you to make changes to accomodate that the 2nd time around, but as with my 2nd time around there is always something that can make it work better.
