Home Learning for November 2nd and 3rd
2022 - 2023
On Thursday Bramble Class enjoyed a fabulous trip to Arundel learning all about life in a castle long ago. We dressed up as lords and ladies and saw a real suit of armour. We visited the great hall and found out about a banquet. We climbed a spiral staircase to reach the Keep and walked around the battlements. After lunch we went on a dragon hunt in the castle gardens. We had a wonderful day and the children were great ambassaders for our school.
Bramble Class - Arundel Castle
Something very exciting happened when the children found a map that led them to a huge egg that had been laid at the castle. It was carefully carried back to class where the children made a nest to keep it safe. What will hatch out?
The butterflies emerged from the chrysalises over the weekend and during Monday.
On Thursday the children released the butterflies once their wings had hardened.

Bramble class have been observing their live caterpillars turn into chrysalids. We wonder when they might hatch into butterflies!
Bramble class have been using fruit to learn about halving in maths and have practised lots of different art skills to make butterflies
On Thursday 20th April Bramble Class went to visit studios at The Black Barn in Hambrook. We walked in the meadow and discovered some unusual sculptures on the way. Some of the figures were huge!
We wondered through a chain maze and there were pictures and patterns on every wall.
Inside the studio we found out how Laura planned her animal sculptures. She often starts with a drawing or painting of the character and sometimes she creates a collage before starting work on her pottery. Her figures seem to have human faces and feelings.
We all tried t o raw a slug using Laura's picture to help us and used pastel and collage to give it a personality.
We had a great day and learnt so much!

Mrs Morgan and Erin visited Bramble Class today (Thursday 16th March) to talk about engineers. They showed the children the Goblin Car that the older children in Hawthorn Class build and then race.

This then inspired the children to do some of their own engineering.
One group made a buggy, another made a fuel pump and another group made a space ship and steps to get into it.
On Wednesday the 22nd January, the Bramble Reception children came back to school in the dark to have bedtime storytime. They enjoyed hot chocolate and biscuits and then snuggled up in their pjs and blankets to listen to some favourite stories. zzzzzzzz
