If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a BIG surprise! What can you hear? The fluttering of fairy wings? The pitter patter of animal paws? The Enchanted Woodlands sees us exploring our natural environment from the tree tops to the woodland floor and everything in between. We will look around our local environment and discuss what human and physical features we can see.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in one of our polar regions? What will you need to survive and keep warm? In this topic, children will learn about materials and what they can do to keep them warm. They will also take this learning in to other areas to test the strength and durability of different materials. Get ready to march with the penguins, as we take a look at the life of an emperor penguin and how they look after their young.
