P1-3 had a great time visiting Tesco in Oban as part of their Food and Farming topic. They began in the bakery and helped to make bread and see all the stages that bread goes through before it appears on the store shelves. Watching fresh pancakes be made and then eating them whilst still warm was a highlight of the visit! Another favourite activity was tasting and comparing cheeses made from cow’s, goat’s and sheep’s milk on the cheese counter.
Pupils also had activities to complete at the fish counter and fruit and vegetable stalls before taking a full tour of the store. The trip really helped children to explore and discover where foods come from.
