Local history and geography week.

This week we have been learning about our local area, focusing on farming and nutrition. On Tuesday we had a visit from Alfie's mum and dad who talked to us about farming in East Anglia. They explained the very careful process of growing carrots. We tried carrots of different colours and also sampled some very tasty sausages.

We also had a look at the importance of healthy eating and balanced nutrition and planned our own healthy lunchboxes. We designed and tasted a 5-a-day smoothie, learnt a rap to remind us to eat five fruit and vegetables a day and created some fruit faces based on the work of Giuseppe Archimboldo. On Thursday we were also lucky enough to have a visit from Bethany's dad and his tractor. We all got to go inside the cab and ask him questions.

Finally, this morning we had a visit from the Norfolk Records Office and found out lots of interesting facts about Bressingham over one hundred years ago.

A fun week!
