Warm Up:

- Stand facing a wall about 5 steps away
- Throw the ball against the wall and catch it (when you are ready, try one hand, then try changing hands)
- Throw the ball higher or lower and side to side.. remember to keep on your toes

Theme - Food Miles

Hello :)
Today we are going to look at how far our food has travelled. The journey from a food being grown to our plate is called 'Food Miles'

We can find out how far an item of food has travelled by using a 'Food Miles Calculator' (On the link below)


You tasks for today:
1 - Check out the food calculator down below - follow the 3 steps on the right hand side in the green box. You will need to select United Kingdom as your home.
2 - In your house find different fruit and vegetables and look on the packaging to see where they have travelled from.
3 -  Input your information into the Food Miles Calculator and see how far your food has travelled to your house roughly.


I'd like you to find out:
- Which fruit or vegetables in your house has travelled the furthest distance?
- Which fruit or vegetables in your house has travelled the least distance?


Extended challenge:
Research your favourite smoothie or meal. Look at what fruit and vegetables are used in your smoothie or meal. Then use the calculator to find the total miles of all the fruit and vegetables used.

I bet you will be shocked! 

Good luck :)
