Background of Layer Marney:
Amazingly Layer Marney has welcomed visitors for over 500 years. Intriguingly Layer Marney is the tallest Tudor gatehouse in England. Historically it was builtin the 1520’s by Lord Marney, with stone imported from other regions. Remarkably there are 99 steps to the top of the tower, which is 80 feet tall. Tragically Lord Marney died before he finished the tower so now the other half of the building is the car park!

Not long to go now! Are you ready for our trip to Layer Marney Tower?
In preparation for our visit we have been writing non-chronological leaflets about Layer Marney and have already learned lots of interesting facts about how, when and why it was built as well as investigating some of the other exciting things that you could do there.
Don’t forget to get your costume sorted (Miss Dearing is very excited about this!). If you are unsure here are some pictures for inspiration!
Today was the day (Easter Sunday)!
Our Butterflies have gone off into the world to start their own adventures.
All 10 were successfully released, although they did hang around Miss Dearing for a while (maybe they were a bit nervous).
Poor Bill (Nemo) didn’t seem to be able to take flight, so he was carried to a nice sunny wall at the back of the garden. (That wing never did grow!).
There are several videos for you to watch when we get back to school. Enjoy the rest of the Easter holidays and keep your eyes peeled for any of our butterflies while you are out and about!
Following a tense morning (I have spent all morning watching) I am pleased to report that all 5 of the Pine class butterflies and all 5 of the Poplar class butterflies have now emerged!
It was touch and go with Bill for a while and when he did emerge from his chrysalis he was easy to spot as he had one poorly formed wing (Perhaps we should rename him Nemo?).
They all seem quite happy here (at Miss Dearing’s Butterfly hotel), I will be sorry to see them go, but they should be ready to release in a coupe of days!
