This morning Year 3 visited Tesco to find out about where in the world our food comes from. We were greeted by Julie who gave us a challenge to find different fruit and vegetables from at least 4 different countries. We were surprised at how many fruit and vegetables were grown in the UK but she explained this will change with the seasons. I wonder what we would find if we went back in Spring or Summer? Why not keep an eye on the labels of your fruit and vegetables at home and see if this changes over the season! How many different countries will you find in your supermarket shop?
The book 'The World Came to my Place Today' by Jo Readman and Ley Honor Roberts is great for finding out more about where things come from. We have been looking at this during our reading time at school.
