3rd year integrated project
In language and literature, they learnt about the importance of healthy eating and the risks of eating poorly and not exercising can have. They also learnt to identify stereotypes of men and women in the media and how adverts can have a negative impact on young people´s perceptions and health.
In English they learnt about the sociocultural aspects of diets and eating habits in different countries, focusing the difference between Spanish and British habits. They also looked at different models of lifestyles. In groups they researched the nutritional content of an unhealthy snack or drink then created a survey to compare different age groups, by asking how often people consumed the product and their thoughts and perceptions on it. They presented their research on a poster and included a healthy alternative.
In French they learnt about the physical and political geography of France. They also learnt about cultural differences between regions in France and different French cuisine and nutrition. They worked collaboratively to create a document with information about each region.
In history and geography, they learnt about the primary sector and its impacts on the environment. They also learnt about the inequality of food production and consumption around the world as well as the problem of hunger and malnutrition. They worked in groups to create posters about the types and models of farming and their impacts, with key words in English, that they combined with work they did in biology to create a wall mural.
In biology they learnt about the different nutrients and their function in the body. They learnt about healthy eating habits based on the food wheel and compared the Spanish food wheel with the British model. They created a large food wheel in Spanish and English that formed the centre of the wall mural they finished in geography and history. As a group activity they made videos about healthy Mediterranean based recipes and included variations for special diets such as a celiac diet or compared how the recipe would vary between a developed and underdeveloped country.
