Y2 DT: fruit or vegetable?

Our new DT topic on food and nutrition started today with Year 2 squishing, sniffing and labelling a variety of fruit and vegetables. They were pretty good at this, but were all outwitted by a persimmon!

We then learnt about the scientific definition of fruit and vegetable. We were surprised to learn that many of our favourite vegetables are actually fruit! We then investigated where fruit and vegetables grow, but looking carefully at supermarket packaging.
