Today in year 2 we took part in a live webcast by Francesca Simon!

We’re currently looking at Horrid Henry in our literacy lessons and so it was really useful. We even got to hear part of her new book – Horrid Henry’s Cannibal Curse!

Burscough Tesco Visit

Year 2 visited Burscough Tesco!

On Tuesday 16th June year 2 visited Tesco in Burscough as part of their healthy lifestyles topic. We learnt all about different foods, had a look behind the scenes of Tesco and even got a quick go on the checkouts!

First we got to sample some yummy cheese – some of it even had chocolate and orange in it! Our favourites were the Lancashire and the Five Counties cheeses. The blue stilton was a bit smelly for most of us – it was Mrs Belger’s favourite though!

Then we went to look at all the seafood at the fish counter – some of us even got to touch some of the fish!

We then got to try more food in the bakery. We tried lots of different breads including cheese bread, cranberry and pumpkin seed bread and even chilli bread!

We then took over the fruit and vegetable section looking for all the colours of the rainbow.

Next we explored the store for different items from our shopping lists. We had to find water, rice, beans, eggs and rice.

And we found their giant chiller and giant freezer – brrrrrrrrr it was cold in there! -18°C in the freezer!

After we’d chilled out we were allowed a go at working on the checkouts!! Customers even kept trying to let us serve them we looked so professional. (Check out (no pun intended..) the pictures of this on the next blog post!)

Finally we went back to school with our goody bags – complete with some healthy fruit to try at home later.
