  • Investigate different minibeasts that may live in the woods
  • Learn about woodland creatures
  • Build shelters
  • Observe the changes that occur with changing season
  • Look at fairy tales that are set in the woods
  • Create maps with keys - fiction and non-fiction
  • Art work based on Gustav Klimt
  • If you go down to the woods today - history of the teddy bear
  • Research on our local area and how it has changed

To start our topic the children travelled into Narnia.


In September we went to Braywick Nature Centre. During our deep forest walk, we built a campfire, toasted marshmallows and went on a minibeast safari.
