Healthy Eating Display – A taste of Spain 5

Fruit and Veg – A taste of Spain 1, originally uploaded by LindaH.

This stunning classroom display from Mrs Littman’s Year 5 class at Kingston Primary in Benfleet, Essex won a first prize of £2000 in the Taste of Spain collage competition for UK Primary schools. I strongly suspect a Teaching Assistant might have been very busy with this display 🙂 I hope she had a group helping. It’s amazing what you can do with crepe paper and it’s not nearly as time consuming as you might think.
My own favourite came from Mrs Greisens’ Year 3 class at Warren Road Primary, Orpington in Kent. This came second and won £1000 for the school. It had slightly more obvious pupil involvement I think. Some of the fruit is cut from magazines, other bits have been painted and cut out, then dried stuff has been stuck on top. I love the pictures round the edge of this one of the kids trying all the different fruit.

There was whole pack of resources to go with this competition. They looked great and would be just the thing to go with Healthy Eating week. I hope they put them online again next year as they are running the competition again in 2008. The standard of displays was not impossibly high and I hope many more schools enter classroom displays next year .

    Food in Spain is a mass of colour, which makes it fantastically vibrant and look all the more tasty. A great idea for a competition though and the entries look fantastic.

    Hi! We entered the competition too and had a lovely couple of hours making our collage – transport was the main issue unfortunately as the pupils had big ideas that wouldn’t have worked with the need to get it across the country in one piece. A couple of hours would not be enough to create something of the standard of those above, but we were proud of our efforts – see

    Hola Senora Stevens 🙂 I’m glad you like the blog. Your school site has some lovely displays and I suspect your children got more from doing theirs than some of the very elaborate ones. Have you ever thought of joining the Classroom Displays Flickr Group? You’d be very welcome 🙂
