Term 6

Our Topic this term is Enchanted Wood and Light


Plants have lived on Earth for over 400 million years. Some plants in our gardens today were around at the same time as the dinosaurs. Why have plants been so successful? This term we become botanists, building on our KS1 learning about plants to discover more and deepen our understanding of plants. What lights up the world? If there was no light, there would be no life on our planet. Light helps plants to grow, it warms the planet, and it allows us to see all the wonders around us, we extend our Science learning, through learning all about light. Using nature as inspiration in Art Using nature as an inspiration colour wheel – Rebecca Vincent – Woodland inspiration. Using nature as an inspiration colour wheel children study the work of Rebecca Vincent alongside their own experiences and imagination to create their own canvas with the title ‘The Enchanted Woodland’.


In Year 3 we went to Elms Vale Park where we sketched pictures of trees and plants to begin our topic of the Enchanted Forest.  We identified different plants and paid special attention to the shapes of the leaves and the tree trunks.  When we got back to school, we coloured them in.  It was interesting to see how many different shades of green there are!
