Vegetable investigation. A mix of vegetables, including lots of unfamiliar ones for the children to explore, encouraging them to use all their senses, and lots of language skills. Relevant books are available encouraging them to enjoy an increasing range of books and know that they carry information as well as stories.
We named and talked about the different fruits and vegetables, and wondered if they looked the same inside. We then opened them up - the children loved scooping out the seeds and then chopping the fruit and vegetables up! Lots of opportunity to develop language and KUW.
