This is such a fantastic text to support children in developing their vocabulary, using description and to begin to write their own simple story.
The children have tasted (and even blind tasted) a wide variety of unusual fruit and vegetables. They have learned about healthy eating and have made their own pasta salad. They surprised themselves by trying new foods and actually enjoying them!
We have set up our own Grocer role play area and the children have consolidated their knowledge on addition and using money to pay for items.
