Year 1 and 2 have been extending their learning about the “Enchanted Woodland” topic in the activity area. The opportunity to extend the learning from the classroom into the activity area has had an amazing impact on their writing. Being given the chance to role play within the “Enchanted Woodland” has helped to develop the vocabulary that the children have been using in their writing and encourage them to think about using all their senses to describe settings.
The “Environmental art” opportunities have been really impressive. These have been inspired by land art artists such as Andy Goldsworthy and Chris Drury by using natural materials, a wide range of different styles and patterns using fir cones, stones, shells, sycamore seeds, laurel leaves and twigs have been produced.
