Friday 28th April 2017 - Full steam ahead!

What a week!  We have been watching our seeds and bulbs, but so far only two seeds have germinated and started to grow, much to everyone's diappointment.


On Wednesday, we began our new topic Around the World in 50 days, with a visit to the Nene Valley Railway.  We had an excellent day and learned so many facts about trains and the railway system.  Even though it takes 6 hours to get a steam train ready to travel, we felt it was well worth it, because our journey by steam train was an amazing way to travel.

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.
