Friday 24th February 2017 - Welcome back to school.


As preparations for our own medieval banquet begin, this week we have been learning about The Great Hall of a castle.  We were very excited to discover that a brand of confectionary many of us enjoy today gets its name from the medieval name for a musician.  Do you know which one it is?

Everyone is getting excited about their costumes and we are all looking forward to our banquet on the revised date of 9th March.

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.
