Farm to Fork Trip

Yesterday both P1 and P1/2 visited the Tesco Broughton store to participate in the “Farm to Fork Trail”. We went on this trip to learn more about where our food comes from and the journey it takes to get from the farms to our forks. This was to build on our learning from class and to further develop this. We had a lovely time with June, our “Farm to Fork Trail” guide. She was very happy, friendly and informative, we also met the store manager, Connor who helped us around some of the trail. We split into 2 groups. 1 group went with June to the store cheese counter to learn about cheese and where it comes from and how it is made. While the other group went with Connor, to the bakery to learn about how bread is made and to see the dough before it is made into bread. This was new learning for us, as we haven’t learned about how bread is made in class yet. When we were in the bakery we had to wear special hats to stop our hair getting into the dough or bread. We also visited the fish counter to learn a little bit about fish. Next we visited the dairy section to learn about butter, yoghurt, milk and cream. We then visited the fruit and vegetable section, where we had to find foods for each colour of the rainbow. Finally, we got to sample some of the foods which we had seen and had been discussing and learning more about. We tried various kinds of cheese, including 5 counties cheese and chocolate and orange cheese! We also tried rye bread and bread with pumpkin and mango in it and we tried some fruit, we had blueberries, pineapple and strawberries and some lovely fruit squash to rinse it all done.

We had a fantastic morning exploring the store and where our food comes from and how it is made. We asked lots of questions to further develop our own knowledge and to consolidate our learning from class.

Have a look at the photos of us on our trip below…
