Yesterday the whole of Year 4 visited our local Tesco Extra. Here we were given a behind the scenes tour of the superstore and gained valuable insight into where our food comes from and how it is made. First we were greeted by our smiley guide for the day, then we were all given clipboards, tunics and hats, so we could feel what it might be like to actually work there. After that we stopped off in the bakery and found out how they make bread. Did you know that they make around 80 loaves a day? On hot days this Tesco will sell over 12000 rolls a day!!!
Following the bakery, we visited the fishmongers, tasted different types of cheeses, discovered where our fruit and veg comes from and chilled out in the freezer for a bit. The freezer was minus eighteen degrees! Brrrrrrrrr!
