Recently in class we have been investigating the types of food that would have been available in ancient China, some 3000 years ago. Each group had a tray of different food types. We smelt each one in turn to see if we could recognise them or asked if they reminded us of any foodstuff we may have eaten already.
We looked closely at them to see if we had seen them in the supermarket or eaten them before.
The foods were:
Some of the food we really liked and we all agreed that star anise reminds us of liquorice.
We also thought that fresh ginger smells like lemon!
