We knew exactly what we wanted to learn when we came back after Half Term. When we were at the Farm we went over a ricketty rackety bridge and some of us thought it might be the sort of bridge that had a Troll living under it. We certainly saw quite a few Billy Goats while we were there too. So we got straight to work learning to retell the story of The Three Billy Goat's Gruff. We enjoyed using instruments to follow the story plan and play a soundtrack for the story too.
We worked in teams to design and make a new bridge for the Goats to trip trap over.
Then we got a note from The Troll saying how sorry he was and that he was only a bit mean and grumpy because he was a bit lonely and wanted to make friends with the goats. So we wrote him a reply and he came to visit. We have been helping him to learn good manners at snacktime and how to be a good friend with our class values ever since.

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.
