Friday 20th May 2016 - The Owl and Hawk trust

This week the children have had a special visit from the Hawk and Owl trust. The children were given the opportunity to see 'Scratchy' the Tawny Owl in the classroom.

The children were also given the chance to investigate Owl pellets, the children were very excited by this opportunity and they managed to find a lot of different bones within the pellets.


We would like to thank the East Midlands Hawk and Owl Trust for this fantastic opportunity.

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.
