Primary four and five pupils at Burnside Primary School swapped their classroom for the supermarket aisle when they paid a visit to the Tesco Superstore in Burnside.
But they weren’t there to pick up the weekly groceries.
Instead, the kids took part in the Farm to Fork Trail - a quest to find out more about the food on their plate and how it gets there.
The pupils were treated to an interactive learning session behind the scenes at the Tesco store to learn up close how some of the food they eat makes its way to their plate.
They were offered different activities in all the major departments such as the produce department and the cheese counter, where they were given an opportunity to try a piece of fruit or cheese they have never eaten before, then on to the bakery department where each pupil had a chance to make their own bread roll to take home.
Class teacher, Louise Aitken, said: “The children all had a great time, they loved it and have written a letter to Tesco thanking them.
“The woman who took us round had put in such an effort, and they children really enjoyed tasting all the food as well, especially the Scotch Bonnet cheese, which left their mouths on fire!
“They all said it was the best class trip they have been on.”
