One of our Health and Wellbeing targets this term is to learn more about where our food comes from. This week we went on two trips as part of the 'Farm to Fork' initiative being run by Tesco.
On Thursday we got the bus through to Argo's Bakery in Stromness. We were shown around by Shane and he explained the different products they make and how they do it.
Post a comment to explain what you saw, what you did and what you got to taste!
Thanks very much to Kirsty and Mrs Wragg for coming with us.
On Friday we went to Tesco and Kasia showed us round and had lots of activities for us to do.
It was interesting to see that the products come from all over the world for us to buy. They stock many of Argo's products from Stromness alongside fruit and vegetables from Brazil and the Netherlands! Why is it important for customers to be able to see where the products come from?
Post a comment to explain what you learned from our trip to Tesco.
Thanks very much to Moira and Mrs Jackson for coming with us and to Carrie who came in to tell us about the bakery on her day off!
We are very fortunate to be able to spend lots of time out and about learning in different environments. Some of the class are really good at listening, taking part appropriately and asking great questions. Unfortunately, every time one of the adults was talking to the class on our trips, some children had to be asked to be quiet and listen. It is VERY important that we all show respect to people who are giving up their time for us. I hope to see an improvement in this.
