Welcome to the Hazel Class page!
Welcome Back! We hope you had a fun and restful break. This half term our learning is all about “Into the woods”. Over the weeks we will:
Week 1 (16.4.18) – Stories we know that feature ‘woods’. Read and share our favourites. Share experiences of visiting the woods before – where have we been? Why did we go there? What did we see?
Week 2 (23.4.18) – Forest school day. What is it like to live in the woods? What trees and plants might you find there? What can you do in the woods? Identify different trees and plants. Building dens in small groups.
Week 3 (30.4.18) – What animals might be in the woods? Have do we know where the animals have been? Identify tracks, feathers, fur, faeces. Can we hear any animals or birds?
Week 4 (7.5.18) – Where in the world would you find woods? Are they always called woods? Compare Thetford forest to the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. How are they similar? How are they different?
Week 5 (14.5.18) – Who might work in the woods? What jobs could you do if you wanted to work in the woods all day? Visitor from the forestry commission?
‘Dress Like A Pirate’ day
Hazel Class thoroughly embraced ‘Dress like a pirate’ day – they made pirate hats, eye patches, cutlasses, parrots, hooks and telescopes. We also learned sea shanties and shared pirate stories. We hope this will be a memorable start to our new topic and inspire some work later in class.
