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.
It was a sunny February morning and Canterbury and Dover Class went outside to visit the chickens and the ducks. All of a sudden we noticed colourful ribbons dancing in the wind, we dashed over to find out more and then we saw...
A sign, that said "Help I've lost my magic!" Just below it was a tiny woodland village with shiny red toadstools and little wooden doors. We think it might be fairies.
Can Year One help find the magic?
In science we have been learning about growth. We have planted some tiny cress seeds and are excited to watch them grow. We have placed our seeds in different environments to explore which ones will grow the tallest. We might even taste the cress when it is fully grown. We have also been on a colour hunt and been exploring all the beautiful colours of the plants and flowers around the school. We will be continuing to plant different seeds such as sunflowers and vegetables.
