There was adventurous tasting, creative decorating, great talking and fabulous learning when we had a visit from Tesco supermarket at the end of October.
After the success of the last visit at the end of last year, two ladies from the Alfreton Tescos supermarket came again to visit our nursery and brought with them a wonderful selection of breads, fruit, vegetables and a special little half term treat!
The children really enjoyed using their senses to sniff and smell, touch and eat. They ate different breads and learned about which was healthier and why, they tasted vegetables grown in the UK and fruit including pineapple from Costa Rica and Kiwi from New Zealand. They also looked on the globe and learned about where the produce came from and how it got to the supermarket.
At the end of the session as a special half term treat they decorated a tasty gingerbread man to take home with them.
This experience was made possible by the government ‘Farm to Fork’ initiative and is part of Tescos ‘Eat Happy’ project.
A big thank you goes out to Jo and Alison from Tesco for making this such a wonderful and exciting day. The children had fantastic fun learning with them.
