The best selling Start-Up series of books have now been rewritten to emphasise the cross-curricular teaching potential of each title. They will provide notes and activities, spread by spread, highlighting ways in which learning can be extended in various subject areas for KS1. The other key changes on the original series will be revamped end sections featuring extension learning details together with the latest internet and web resource information. This title introduces children to a range of multi-sensory activities relating to fruit and vegetables in order to make their taste buds water while they follow recipes, plan picnics and think about healthy diets. Activity ideas focus on food technology, geography, ICT and literacy.
