Term One Enchanted Woodland
If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a BIG surprise. Foxes and badgers, voles and mice, beady eyed owls in the swaying tree tops. Beneath the leaves are tiny footprints – animal or imp? You decide. Deciduous or evergreen? Can you match a leaf to its tree? Can you match a petal to its flower? Let’s build a den, stick by stick and branch by branch. Or we could make a teeny tiny home for a woodland fairy. Then let’s party down in the woods with Mr Fox and all his woodland friends. We’d better not get lost. Let’s leave a trail of conkers as we go. At last, it’s time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows. Yum, yum.
We explored the Jeskyn’s Enchanted fairy garden and came across the Gruffalo too! We also made some of our own animal habitats to help mini beasts shelter from the weather or fairy habitats.
Such a great day; was had by all!
Here’s a few snapshots of our trip :)
In topic we have been learning about habitats, food chains, maps of our local area and e-safety.
We would also like to say a huge Thank you for all of their amazing woodland projects that have been coming in. We can see how much hard work has been put in them and the children’s excitement and confidence when presenting them was a joy to see!
In English, we have been reading Fantastic Mr Fox and focusing on the woodland animals, you will find in English woodland.
The children created some great descriptions and factfiles of Foxes, badgers or hedgehogs. Have a little read of a few of them below:
