This week we are learning about Oranges and citrus fruit. Today the children learnt about where orange comes from and how we squeeze the juice from the orange. This practical life activity reinforces their learning, and works on their motor skills. Drinking the juice from the oranges they themselves squeezed was a very exciting activity, it gives the children a sense of independence and mastery. Setting up a little activity table in the kitchen at home such as this is a good way to get the children involved in food preparation.
