Friday 9th June 2017 - வணக்கம் (Hello)


What an exciting start to Term 6 we have had in Year 2!  Having explored the world of transport last term, this term we are exploring the world, beginning with India.  We were thrilled to welcome the parents of one of our class members on Thursday who, born in India, came to help us learn about their country, culture and beliefs. 

We found out so much in just a short space of time - did you know that the number zero, chess and buttons were all invented in India?

We learned so much and enjoyed our visit immensely, but then we discovered that having given up their afternoon to help us with our learning, our guests also brought in treats for US!  So, then this morning we enjoyed a range of Indian biscuits and sweets.  Thank you very much.

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.
