Friday 29th April 2016 - Rutland Water Visit

This week the children have visited Rutland Water as part of their topic 'The Magical Zoo'. During our visit the children had the opportunity to hunt for mini beasts, pond dipping and bird watching. The children had a fantastic time at Rutland water with the highlight being pond dipping and bird watching.

Hunting for mini beasts.

Pond dippping.

While the childe were pond dipping, they were given the chance to explore the different creatures that they found. Some children managed to find some fish but everyone was able to catch something.

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.
