The Enchanted Woodland.

|f you go down to the woods today you’re sure of 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? What can you find? 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 lets 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 its time to rest by the woodland fire, listening to stories and toasting our sweet, gooey marshmallows. Yum, yum!

At the beginning of every topic we send out a list of ideas for possible homework projects for your child to do at home. We do not expect you to complete them all. They are just suggestions for you to choose the ones you think your child might like. 

We will send out some spellings for you to practice at home. These will be sent out on a Friday. The spellings will link to the phonics sounds that we have been learning that week. The children will have their test every Friday, also. 

It is very important to encourage your child to read as much as they can at home. Reading is the foundation to a lot of learning in Year 1 and helps your child to achieve the expected levels in Year 1. 


Story time! 

Here are some stories, read by Miss Childs in Class 3 that your children may enjoy:
