A VISIT TO THE FRUIT SHOP
To enhance our class topic “Handa´s Surprise” Nursery class children went for a walk to the village centre to visit the local fruit shop “El Huerto” where we tried various local and exotic fruits and vegetables. We recognised the products that we can find in our fridges at home and we were able to extend our English vocabulary naming the more unusual fruits.
We finished our visit by tasting a well known fruit from our own Canary Islands, the banana. We would like to thank the fruit shop owner who very kindly donated the fruit, enhancing the importance of a varied and healthy diet.
Once back in class, and taking into account our recent visit, we designed our own fruit shop, in which the children were able to practice the knowledge they acquired of buying and selling fruit, the exchange of money for fruit….. We also put scales in the shop to be able to practice “heavy and light” with different fruits.
