Friday 30th June - Rutland Water

This week we have continued to reflect on our visit to Rutland Water.  We have revisited the statistics that Dave shared with us on open water dangers and we have produced posters to promote safety around areas of open water amongst our friends at school as we near the school summer holidays.


Then we thought about Rutland before and after the reservoir, with everyone in agreement that it was better with, than without.  We thought about all of the leisure activities and work opportunities that Rutland Water had to offer, producing our own version of the map below.


Next stop ... Italy!

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.
