Pirates Ahoy!

Pirates Ahoy!










Pirates have arrived aboard a splendid Pirate ship in reception.

The children have been playing pirate counting and matching games. We have used a pirate game to help us develop our reading and writing skills.


We have thought of lots of questions that we would like to find out about pirates and  we have designed and made some accessories for our ship; a steering wheel, an anchor and a Cannon!

















Mr Christopher came to teach us some sea shanties and showed us how he plays his accordion.

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.
