Friday 11th November 2016 - We've Loved Every Drop!

This week saw our current topic "Love Every Drop!" draw to a close with the final section of our non-chronological report focusing on the Humboldt Penguin that we enjoyed meeting during our visit to the Sea Life Centre in Hunstanton back in September.  We have covered a wide range of topics connected with water from how we use it to keep healthy (and our strong focus on teeth), how it is cleaned ready for us to use and as a habitat for a wide range of animals.  We have been excited and inspired by our visit, our hands-on experiences and our link with the CBBC Live Lesson from a Rockpool.


One of our homework winner this week, inspired by our studies.


This coming week we are looking forward to combining our autumn studies with our Roald Dahl Fantastic Mr Fox focus week.  Watch this space for more exciting learning!

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.
