WRITING CHALLENGE! Make a mini book or leaflet about your favourite woodland animal using facts. Research on the internet or visit the local library to find facts and information about your woodland animal.

Build a den with your family or friends. Draw a picture or take a photograph of it to show at school. Write about how you made your den and the materials you used.

Compare the shape and size of different leaves.

Can you make miniature homes and gardens for fairies and pixies? Use natural materials such as bark, pebbles, twigs, leaves and pine cones. Draw a picture or take a photograph of it to show at school.

CREATIVE CHALLENGE! Draw and write a plant diary. Take photographs or draw pictures to show your plant as it grows and changes each week.

Play the ‘who am I?’ game with family and friends.  They need to ask you questions to find out if you are a woodland animal, plant, or tree.






We also ask that you listen to your child read for at least 10 minutes every day.
