WALT: list the main food groups and describe their role in the body.


This week, we will be learning about and looking at the 7 main food groups, although 2 of the groups are not as commonly referred to.  Each of the groups have a job and responsibility toward our nutrition and balance is extremely important.


Your first task is to watch this video and write down the main food groups, giving examples of each of them and also writing down what each of them do:  Stop the video when you need to, so that you are able to make notes and answer the questions.


Once you have made those notes, you will be able to use them in the other tasks that have been set.  You will also need this information to use in your Computing lesson later this week.


In Resources you will find a powerpoint giving an Introduction to Food Types and 2 activities.  Although they are similar, please try to do both of the activities as it will re-inforce knowledge and understanding.
