After our woodland adventure at Conkers inspires us, we’ll explore the woodland areas in school, observe the wildlife, collect natural objects and take beautiful pictures of the things we see throughout this half term, we’ll write about our experiences and learn all about trees. We’ll use information books to investigate woodland creatures and make mini-books of our own. Throughout the project, we will find out how to recognise different plants and animals and create detailed, observational drawings of them. The tale of Hansel and Gretel will inspire us to write our own stories with a woodland theme. We’ll build miniature dens, create woodland works of art and construct mini-woodlands from twigs, sticks, pine cones and leaves. At the end of our project, we’ll have so much to share with you. We’ll read our stories aloud, plant seedlings in the school grounds and have a special woodland themed activity afternoon. We would love for you to come along early on this day to share all our amazing learning from this topic! (date to follow).
