Friday 6th January 2017 - Happy New Year!

Happy New Year and welcome back to school.

We began this term, dipping back into our Whatever the Weather topic, looking at weather forecasting and the season of winter.  We thought about the types of weather we experience during the winter and how the weather forecasts help us to prepare.  We enjoyed some winter poems through our guided reading and made bird cakes to look after those birds that stay with us through the cold winter months, writing instructions so that others could make one too.

We thought about winter being the season of coughs and colds and learnt the "Catch it, Bin it, Kill it!" slogan to help us to reduce the spread of coughs and colds when we cough and sneeze.

We ended the week presenting our own weather forecasts and you wouldn't believe how varied the weather across the UK could be!


Next week, we begin our new topic "And they lived happily ever after" with the very exciting spark of a visit to the theatre to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

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.
