Beautiful Butterflies Home Learning
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
