Year 2

Posted: Mar 27, 2023 by: Tara (Tara) on: Forest Blog

Year 2 have been busy learning more about woodland creatures and their habitats.

What do they eat?

What eats them?

We spoke about our most valuable habitats: pond and hedge.

Why are they so important? 

We looked in detail at an oak tree (some living to be over 1,000 years old), with over 3,000 living things depending on it for food, shelter, protection or warmth.

Last Sunday's episode of David Attenborough's Wild Isles focused on woodlands and included some amazing footage about oak trees and the wood wide web.

Child voice

Isabelle: The cloud cover is like a big, fat duvet keeping in the warm.

Cooper: I was inspired by Connie because I liked how she made her bee and especially its sting.

Teddy: We made birdboxes together!

LJ: First we had to sand them, to prevent splinters and make it smooth.

Teddy: Next we had to see how it was built.

Harley: Then we had to line it up and nail it together. After that we made a hinge.

LJ: Finally we painted it.
