Friday 30th September 2016 - Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!

We have had a very exciting week this week, because we visited the Sealife Centre at Hunstanton on Wednesday and went on to the beach. 

It was great to see the looks of awe and wonder on the children's faces as they saw the sea creatures "for real" and "so close".  A special moment was seeing a "real life Dory" and lots of "Nemos", not to mention the sharks swimming overhead and the enormous sea turtle, Ernie.  The children used their reading skills to find out lots of information from the boards around the centre, so that they could further their learning about the sea animals.

After our picnic lunch, we took advantage of the low tide to go across to the beach to look for shells and build sandcastles.


We were extremely lucky with the weather and the children certainly took full advantage of all the new learning opportunities that our visit provided.  We look forward to sharing our new knowledge with you through our follow up learning activities.

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.
