We had a taste of the countryside last week when Mortons Dairies brought their traditional milk float in to visit us!
Staff and pupils learned about milk, the cows it comes from and its health benefits, and we also enjoyed samples of dairy products.
Mortons Dairies has been delivering milk and groceries to neighbourhoods in Liverpool and the surrounding areas since the 1920’s. Julian Harrison, operations director of Mortons Dairies, said: “We’re delighted that our milkmen are able to help educate children in our local community about milk and the products we produce with it. It’s great to be able to let them sample some products and sit aboard our traditional milk float. Our milkmen are out in the early hours and many children never get the chance to see a real milk float in action.”
Greg Parker, Head Teacher, said: “We aim to immerse children in enjoyable learning experiences, so we were thrilled when the milkmen from Mortons Diaries offered to visit with their milk float. The children were excited to find out more about where their milk comes from and loved being able to see the traditional float.”
