On Tuesday the Squirrels class had a brilliant afternoon in D.T. using our senses to explore 3 different healthy sandwiches. The flavours were Marmite, Cheese and Tomato and Cucumber. This was linked to the Design and Technology curriculum and part of our project this half term called ‘Inside Out’.
We used our sense of sight to look at the sandwiches and decide which was the best looking. Most of us agreed on cucumber and tomato because it looked more interesting.
Then we used our sense of smell to decide which sandwich smelt the best. Some loved the smell of Marmite, some did not!
Finally, we were allowed to taste them! We used our tongues to taste our sandwiches first. It was really close which one was our favourite with Marmite being the winner but some of us emptied our plates and loved them all!
We used the tasting session to help us design our own sandwiches using these ingredients, which we will be making next week! Lots of us have chosen to mix up these sandwiches and make combinations like cheese and marmite or tomato and cheese.
Ben has chosen to make marmite and cucumber because ‘I like them both. I don’t like any other ingredient.’
Josie has chosen to make marmite because ‘I have it at home everyday’.
Wyatt has chosen to make a marmite and cheese and cucumber sandwich!
We hope you enjoy our photos and can tell which sense we are using!
