Truleigh Hill 2018

Wednesday 13th June
 
Good Evening! 
 
This morning 3KJ and the half of 3LH woke full of energy ready to start the day! After a cooked breakfast we practised our map reading skills ready for our big walk. All the children were very excited and ready to go. We started half up up the hill and walked down along the river. After a quick ice lolly stop we made it to Bramber Castle. Some of us were very much looking forward to our picnic lunch which we enjoyed in the castle grounds. Sadly after lunch it was time to go home. 
 
While 3KJ and half of 3LH were on the walk, 3LL and the rest of 3LH arrived excited and raring to go! We started off by admiring the views, the sun was out and we could see for miles! We were impressed by how much of the sea we could see! After lunch we go out our magnifying glasses and bug pots to go on a bug hunt. Then we created awesome sculptures out of the nature around us, including a 'forgotten jungle' and a 'tent'. We had a look at some plants and their functions before coming in for dinner. We are now watching a film enjoying some hot chocolate! 
 
See you tomorrow! 
P.S. We will try and upload some pictures but the ipad has decided to freeze on us!
 
Tuesday 12th June
 
Good evening parents,
We arrived safely at Truleigh Hill this morning and it was lovely to see the children gasp in awe at the wonderful views. We took a walk down to look out over the local area to see where we will be walking tomorrow. The children had some time to sketch out what they could see. We played some games and had our lunch before setting off on some bug hunting. During this activity, the children caught many unusual bugs. The long grass was a challenge for the children but they still managed to find a selection of creepy crawlies. They observed them through magnifying glasses and drew them in their booklets. Some of the bugs they found were grasshoppers, spiders, ladybirds and butterflies. Some children even managed to find the rare Truleigh Hill bug!
 
The children worked together to construct some creative art sculptures using the nature around them. We had some nests, tents and even a bug hotel! The children also created their own nature individual picture as a keep sake!
 
With great anticipation, the children were told which rooms they're in and given the challenge to make their beds!! With some teamwork (and a bit of help from the teachers!) we got there and got to enjoy some time with our friends. We are now looking forward to our dinner al fresco, a DVD with our teddies and a good nights sleep! We have included a few photos of our visit so far and check back later for some more!
