In the past, teachers and students have had the option to come into store for a tour around each department; learning about where different types of food come from, how products are made or grown, and get hands-on sampling various foods as well as learning some basic food prep and safe cooking. These tours offered a fantastic opportunity for children to become more conscious about how their food gets to their plates or into their lunchboxes!
Due to the current circumstances and schools not being able to visit, Morrisons has created a virtual tour that can be shown from the safety of your own classroom, The Lincoln Road, Peterborough branch of Morrisons is looking for local schools to be the first to preview the tour and give their feedback so that this resource can be further developed and adapted to meet schools needs. Currently it is targeted to KS2, but if successful, then more will be created for other year groups.
If you would like to be one of the first to be involved and get hold of all the activities and worksheets that have been created too, then contact Ellie Harwood on [email protected]
