Today we visited Tesco at the Ricoh arena. We were learning about how our food gets from the farm and onto our plate. We were lucky enough to visit the bakery, the fishmongers and the cheese counter.
We walked around the warehouse and the fridge/freezer store cupboards. What type of food did we see in the freezer and the fridges? Why?
At the fishmongers, we watched a fish being filleted. What did this mean? You were given the opportunities to ask the fishmonger your own questions. What did you learn?
In the bakery, we saw all of the machinery which was involved in mixing, proofing and baking the bread. How many loaves of bread do Tesco at the Ricoh bake each week? What did the baker use to help the bread to rise? How many types of bread can you name?
Finally, we visited the cheese counter. There were so many cheeses to choose from! We smelt Stilton cheese. What did it smell of? What had been injected into the Stilton cheese? We even got to taste some of the cheese. Which cheese did you prefer? Write adjectives to describe the cheese.
What did you think of our trip? What have you learnt?
