Friday 22nd January 2016 - Winter is upon us.

We have been thinking about the season of winter.  In addition to writing winter acrostic poems, we have made snowflakes, calligrams of winter adjectives, winter paintings and done some descriptive writing.  We finished the week thinking about how we need to look after those birds that choose to migrate to the United Kingdom for the winter from the northern and Eastern European countries and those that choose to stay and made bird feeders.

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.
