Pupils get practical lesson about food

Pupils from Bury St Edmunds have learned all about where their food comes from and the process involved in getting it from ‘farm to fork’.

All week, Tesco in St Saviour’s Interchange has welcomed groups of students from Sebert Wood Community Primary School, on Moreton Hall, as part of its Eat Happy project.

Teaching assistant Diane Pyle, who accompanied Year 4 pupils to the store on Monday, said: “It was really, really good. They absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed it.”

The youngsters learned about which countries different fruit and vegetables come from, made fruit kebabs, held a fresh fish, decorated hot cross buns and took part in a cheese tasting.

“You can get some of the same products from China and Spain so they looked at a map and how far things had come, and what was grown in the UK,” said Mrs Pyle.

The pupils were shown the supermarket’s fridges and freezers, venturing into one freezer where the temperature was minus 22.6 degrees Celsius, and were shown where deliveries got made and how materials like cardboard and plastic are recycled.

Mrs Pyle said: “They learned about how much goes on behind the scenes. It was very successful and well organised, and absolutely everyone enjoyed it – they took it all on board.”
