Terrific Trip to Tesco!

In class we have been learning all about being Health and Wellbeing Warriors.

On Tuesday 5th of June we went to Tesco on a school trip to learn more about healthy eating and the journey of food. When we arrived at Tesco we were met by Margaret and Chloe (who we named ‘The Pineapple Sisters’ because of their hats!).

They made us do a spelling test before we even started! We had to spell out WARRIORS with fruit that began with the first letter of it. It was a race to the finish!

We then had a tour of the Tesco store. We learned that a red star beside an item means it is a ‘Best Seller’ at the store and that an 7/8 year old should have no more than 30 grams of sugar a day. We also found out about the Free From range and were very lucky to try some Chocolate buttons which were Gluten, Wheat, Milk and Egg free! They were very yummy and tasted like dark chocolate.

After, we visited the back of the store where all of the stock is kept while waiting to go onto the shelves. We were able to go into the fridge and even the giant freezer! We put Miss McDonald in too!

Next, we went underground to see the rest of the store. We saw different rooms where money is counted, we saw the managers office and the break-room. We posed for a picture for the CCTV cameras! When we went into the break-room we  were able to make up our own fruit salad pots! They were very tasty!

Primary 3M really enjoyed our trip and would like to say a huge thank-you to Tesco Dunblane and Margaret for letting us come and visit their store! THANK-YOU!
