As part of our geography topic, we followed our own maps to Fabio’s ice cream shop in Hitchin town.
As part of our Design and Technology we have been considering market research and it’s importance in supporting the design of new food products on the market. In order for pupils to understand that this is what happens in real life, we met with Fabio in his shop and asked him lots of questions about his ice creams. I must add here that some of the questions were so carefully considered and planned that Fabio couldn’t answer all of them in case he gave away too many of his successful secrets! Our pupils were delighted to hear from someone in real life who has carried out some of the same processes as we have as part of our DT. We thank Fabio for taking time to meet with us as it really did enhance their understanding.
