This term we are entering the Enchanted Wood and imagining all the magical things it might hold. We will be reading the Enchanted Wood story, with its mysterious Faraway Tree and learning to tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We will be reading all kind of stories around this woodland theme. Through our work on this we will be learning about different types of trees, how trees change through the year, mapping, compass points, woodland habitats and different kinds of animals. Our art and DT work will centre around the kind of things that could be found in a real or magical wood, with our maths focussing on place value through the context of helping some of the inhabitants of the Magic Faraway Tree.
In the second part of the term we will be undertaking a Mantle of the Expert project (where the class and I work in role as a responsible team to undertake a job for a fictitious client), which takes place in the Enchanted Wood. We will work in role as the Enchanted Wood Wildlife Trust solving a mystery for Granny and helping a lost wolf.
I am very excited about everything we have planned and to create our new class team together.
