As part of our Shops and Shopping topic, we wrote to local shops to ask them if we could visit them to find out what it’s like working in a shop. In our language lessons, we learned how to write letters using the proper layout. In ICT, we learned how to do touch typing and typed up our letters. We then addressed envelopes and sent them to the local shops. We were able to visit Boots, WH Smith, The Co-op, Grasshopper Toys and The Toy Shop where we had the chance to do some shopping and scan it through the till as well as learning about how shops get their products, all the ways in which they sell them and what they do with the money. As well as this, British Heart Foundation came to visit us to tell us about how charity shops use their money.
