Oldcastle Primary School has a brand new fruit and veg shop courtesy of the Tesco Bags of Help scheme. The wooden shop is situated in the main playground and year 5 children have been tasked with selling fruit and vegetables during their morning break times.
Children in the juniors are thoroughly enjoying purchasing fruit throughout the break times. The year 5 children are really getting into the enterprise project and look forward to selling to the friends. As a school we encourage all our children to adopt a healthy lifestyle and it is fantastic to see so many children purchasing the fruit.
The school were delighted to receive funding from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative. As well as the fruit shop Oldcastle has seen further improvements to the school garden and developing their cob oven area. We have made improvements to the cob oven area by developing a preparation area and providing wooden bench seating for our children to participate and enjoy learning in the outdoor environment.
“It is amazing to see the children so enthusiastic about our small enterprise project and also encouraging children to eat healthy. It is pleasing to see so many children enjoying apples, pears, bananas, carrot sticks and oranges throughout their break time. Our wooden shop provides a perfect location for our children to sell the fruit and we look forward to using the space for lots of other events in the future”. Rebecca Taylor, year 5 teacher.
