We have continued with our theme of 'When I Grow Up' this week. We have been finding out about the lifecycles of animals that come from eggs such as frogs, butterflies, chickens and even snakes and sharks. We've had a good chat about and painted some pictures of what we hope to be when we grow up and now we have begun to think about the life cycle of plants.
We enjoyed reading stories about a boy called Oliver who never ate vegetables until he saw them all grow. So we had a look at different vegetables and decided on prices for them according to how heavy they were.
Also we had a look at the salad that we had at lunchtime. We pulled it all apart and named each vegetable. Then we decided to plant the seeds from those vegetables so that we can grow a salad of our own. We read and ordered some instructions so we knew how to plant the seeds correctly and now we are writing some instructions too.

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.
