Autumn Term 1 - The Enchanted Woodland and The Scented Garden

22/10/2020 - Mr Fox's Woodland Party


What a lovely end to a very busy term! After working hard this week to create decorations, write stories, make headband/masks and reply to the invitation from Mr Fox, the children went down to the woodland area and roasted marshmallows and made delicious s'mores around the firepit! They were delicious!

Year 2 put their knowledge to the test this afternoon and worked in groups to solve parts of the interactive knowledge organiser! They had to use what they had learnt and ensure the labels and pictures were in the correct places.

Innovate Week w.b. Monday 19th October 2020


This week, Year 2 received a message from Mr Fox inviting them to a woodland party at the end of the week! But he asked them to complete some jobs first! Before Thursday afternoon, the children have to:

 - Write a story.

 - Make an animal themed mask.

 - Create some decorations for the woodland party.

 - Write and record a response to the invitation.


Have a look at the pictures below to see how the children are getting on with their tasks!

Year 2 have been using florist wire and tissue paper to create some rainforest leaves. They researched some example leaves from rainforests around the world before designing their own and then making it.



Something crazy has happened in the classroom this evening and was caught on the cameras! What could it be? Where has it come from? Where could it be leading to? Hopefully the children can help the adults in Year 2 solve the problem!
