A GREAT way to get our pupils excited about the themes we teach them is to take them on a field trip that reinforces what they are learning. So, under our theme “different occupations”, we took them to Build It in Kranskop, where they learned all sorts of things. They discovered the behind-the-scenes activities of a store (e.g. goods storage and delivery, loading of goods onto the truck, and how shelves were arranged in the shop). They recognised all sorts of different building materials and they became more familiar with the different roles of the people working at Build It, for example the cashier, the manager, the stocker, the driver and the security guard. During our tour we met some of the friendliest staff we know. They were more than willing to go out of their way to help us learn as much as we could. A big thank you goes to Mrs Ngwenya and her team at Build It in Kranskop for showing us around their wonderful store. — Supplied.
