We arrived at Truleigh Hill with gasps of excitement and glee this morning. The children found the views breath-taking and loved spotting the sites of our work tomorrow, including Bramber Castle. They learnt about renewable energy as we can see the Rampion Wind Farm off the Sussex Coast as well as the use of solar power at the campsite at Truleigh Hill.
After lunch, we found the mysterious 'Truleigh Hill Bug' during our bug hunting, as well as a variety of creepy crawlies. We then created 'Bug Hotels' ready for all our new friends to stay. These were very luxurious with swimming pools, gyms, spas and gardens. We finished off the afternoon with a calming trip to the pond to write poetry linked to our senses.
The children were very excited to find out who was in their room and even more excited to discover the kind staff at Truleigh Hill had made their beds. They enjoyed their tasty burgers for dinner and are currently winding down to a film with hot chocolate. We are all excited for the walk tomorrow and hopefully tired enough to fall asleep quickly tonight.
The other half of the trip arrived and after a quick biscuit break, we walked down to the view point to look out over West Sussex and see where we would be walking tomorrow. The sheep in the field had other ideas though and they made us take a small detour! The children completed a sketch of their view before learning about renewable energy. After a lunch break, the children split off into groups where they visited the pond to complete some poetry based on what they could see down there or create a bug hotel using natural resources around them. Then we enthusiastically hunted for bugs where we managed to catch many butterflies! We loved watching them but released them into the wild quickly so they wouldn't be too scared. The children loved having some free time in the field after we unpacked our rooms and worked up an appetite for dinner. After getting into our pjs and bringing up our teddies, we have settled down to watch a film with some hot chocolate before bed. We have got our waterproofs ready for tomorrow and are still looking forward to our walk!
