We have been very lucky this week to have been looking after some chicken eggs that were ready to hatch. We have very much enjoyed watching as 12 eggs hatched out in the incubator and this has been the perfect way to complete our learning about life cycles.
If you haven't already, please feel free to pop in and meet our little chicks. We will be allowing them a bit more of a run this week! Or check out the Gallery where we will be posting more of the photographs taken.

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.
