Part of our Topic this week is looking at Food and Shopping. Today we discussed what Food we could buy from the : bakery, butcher’s, greengrocer’s and the supermarket. The children were a bit mixed up as to what to get from the first three but lots of information about what you can get from the supermarket. I guess in this day and age when we get everything from one shop – the supermarket, the other small shops are almost forgotten. After brainstorming ideas, we set out in groups, and we drew items we can buy from these shops. We pasted them on our shopping trolleys. a lot of vocabulary and thoughts came through with this activity.
It would be ideal that from time to time, you use the ‘small shops’ as well as the supermarket and take the children with you, so that they can see the difference.
