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.
Year 1 have had an exciting week designing and creating their own tree boggarts. They explored the different sculpting techniques and used these to create the face. They will definitely scare away any unwanted guests in our enchanted woodland!
The children in Year 1 have been learning about the structure and functions of each part of a plant. They first identified the different parts of a flower and used their measuring skills to measure the length of the petals, stem, leaves and roots.
