Trip to Marks and Spencer
In Year 4 we recently enjoyed a trip to Marks and Spencer in Cheshire Oaks to learn all about the choices they made when building their unique eco-friendly store.
We were welcomed by the staff who took us on an informative tour of the store to find out about their choices. We were intrigued to find out that the living wall which surrounds Marks and Spencer is designed to attract bees, butterflies and other wildlife. It also insulates the building so they use less heating inside the store.
We also wen round the back of M and S to look at the bird houses. We had to be quiet if we wanted to catch a glimpse of the birds.
We learnt a lot on our trip and will be using it in our Choices topic work.
