Autumn Term - Footsteps through the Forest

Our topic starts with a fabulous walk in the woods where we are inspired to create natural sculptures and meet a very surprising visitor. We think about the changing of the seasons and the difference between evergreen and deciduous trees. We think about whether whether Little Red Riding Hood should talk to strangers and use this to explore “stranger danger”. The exciting texts that we read lead us to explore and write about the world of animals such as wolves and also to make food such as pancakes (Mr Wolf’s Pancakes). We explore the wildlife that we might find in the forest and meet some more surprise visitors! We will then discuss different types of animals and what they eat.

Questions we'll be asking:

  • How did Little Red Hood use her senses?
  • What was life like in grandma’s day?
  • Which instruments should we use to sound like a wolf?
  • Can you write your own retelling of Little Red Riding Hood?
  • How do we make pancakes like Mr Wolf?
  • What are the signs of autumn?
  • How can we find out about owls?
