As part of our mini mission ‘Poles Apart’ the children tasted food from around the world. They have sampled black beans from Brazil, fried rice with sweet and sour sauce from China, falafel from Egypt, pineapple from Hawaii and BBQ chicken from Australia. They spent time exploring these different cultures, their flags, landmarks and traditions. They have each chosen three of these places and included information about what they have learned in their own versions of the story ‘The Snail and the Whale’ by Julia Donaldson, in which the characters travel the world.
