PRE-SCHOOL children from the Elizabeth Foundation checked out a supermarket in Fareham.

The children visited Sainsbury’s in Broadcut and spent the day finding items on the shelves and putting them through the till.

Preschool teacher Rachel Mills said: ‘The children don’t always understand what I am teaching them so it is nice to go out and show them.

‘They had to find and count certain fruit so it was good exercise for them.’

Linda Langdon, PR ambassador for the store, said: ‘We are here for people and groups to come in and visit. You can tell that the kids absolutely loved it. They thought they were proper grown-ups.’

The Elizabeth Foundation was set up to help children who are deaf and always look at ways to incorporate real-life situations into the children’s learning.
