Snapshot News:

Year 7 - Food and Nutrition

The poem below was written by Year 7 students Alfie and Joprince, students were asked to ‘sell 5 a day’ in a lesson about nutrition and eating 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

Have a pear or be eaten by a bear

Have a carrot or be killed by a parrot

Have a pea or you will be stung by a bee

Heave a peach or your blood will be sucked by a leech

Have a grape or be eaten by a snake

Eat your 5 a day or you will be forced to run away

Be healthy or you will be forced to be stealthy

Eat your fruit and veg, or you will get stuck in a thorny hedge!
