Years 1 and 2 Curriculum Overview

Enchanted Woodland

Our next topic is going to be Enchanted Woodland! This is a Geography and Art based topic so we look forward to learning some new art techniques and mapping skills. We are looking forward to learning about forest and woodland areas as well as investigating different plants and animals in Science. This topic will involve some outdoor learning, so wrap up warm and get your muddy boots on!

Home learning ideas:

  • Plant some daisies, poppies, or other wild flowers. Draw and write a flower diary about the changes you see each week. Take photographs or draw pictures to show your flowers as they grow and change.
  • Take your family for a woodland walk near your home. Take photographs of interesting flowers or trees to show your friends at school.
  • Search the web for images and facts about amazing woodlands or forests around the world. Make a scrapbook showing the best ones.
  • Go on a tree hunt. Can you show an adult, an evergreen and deciduous tree? Tell your family what the words ‘evergreen’ and ‘deciduous’ mean.
  • Make patterns and sculptures using natural materials in your garden. Take photographs of your artwork.
  • Have fun building a den with your family or friends! Draw a picture or take a photograph of it to show at school. Write about how you made your den and the materials you used.
