Friday 16th September 2016 - Visiting and a Visitor.


This week our focus was RE and we began to think about the symbolism of water in different religions, beginning with Christianity.  We went across to Christ Church and took "baby Rosie" with us so that we could see what happens in a Christian baptism and the role and symbolism of water in the service.

On Wednesday, Richard visited from Anglian Water to remind us where our water comes from, what happens to it before it gets to us and he also talked about water for health and the importance of saving water.  We tested different samples of water to see which was tap water just like the scientists at Anglian Water do, we thought about how water is important in our lives and we also did an experiment to see how much water is wasted when we leave the tap on whilst cleaning our teeth.  We were very shocked to discover that it was 16 Litres!

Other Stuff


What a wonderful trip to Morrisons we had on Thursday morning!


We tried several Italian foods such as fresh Ciabatta with olive oil and fresh basil leaves, various cold pastas, Italian meats and cheeses including a blue cheese.


We tried Italian olives and Greek olives to compare them to.


The butchery department talked the children through the process of making minced beef, used for bolognaise and demonstrated making fresh burgers too.


Our children were also luckily enough to look at and touch various fresh fish including a squid!  We have since tasted some cooked octopus in school which got very mixed reviews!


In school we learnt about how olive oil is made and we visited the oils aisle to look at the various choices on offer.


Morrisons provided cookies and a drink each in the café to conclude our visit which the children (and adults) really enjoyed.
