Today has been extremely exciting! Fifteen lucky children from Westfield Infant School including members of the School Council and the School Nutrition Action Group had the opportunity to officially open the Cooperative Food on Trent Road. On arrival at the store we looked at lots of the produce including fruit, vegetables, meat, dairy products and even the chocolate. We thought about where each of the products comes from. If you didn’t go on the trip perhaps next time you visit a shop you could think about where the different produce comes from. We noticed that lots of the products at the Cooperative Food had Fair Trade labels. We were pleased to see this as we know that if we buy these products the farmers will get a fair payment for their work.
We had our photo taken doing the official opening of the store, we even got to cut the ribbon! We each got a balloon to take home and a goodie bag full of delicious food to share with our families.
Meanwhile at school the children had the chance to share breakfast and reading activities with their families. Some classes had their turn in the Life Education Centre today and all classes continued their learning about how to make healthy choices and live a healthy lifestyle. What can your child tell you about their learning today?
