Preschool have shown great interest in talking about going shopping. We enhanced the provision to provide the opportunity for the children to create 'shopping lists'. They drew different foods and we discussed about healthy and unhealthy foods, whilst recalling experiences of going to the supermarket. So the next time you go take a trip to the supermarket, you may receive a shopping list from your child! 😁
