Friday 9th February 2017 - Measuring and Music


Our week began with a visit to the music department at Stamford Welland Academy, where we worked with Mrs Thackwray to learn how to sing a medieval song and accompany it with instruments.  We were very pleased with our singing progress, but we have yet to master the timing with our instruments!

We had great fun out in the playground this week combining our maths and history learning, as we measured out and drew our own castle using metre sticks and chalk.  We had learned that many castles walls could be up to 4 metres thick and so we drew a small castle on the playground with walls measuring just 15 metres in length but 4 metres thick so that we could appreciate the depth of them.

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.
