Focus theme: Fun in the Forest!

Spend a week exploring and films set in different forests. You have stories to read, characters to meet, poems to write, facts to find and songs to sing!

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.



Monday –

View and enjoy the story of Into the Forest by Anthony Browne:

Discuss the story and create ideas for your own new story about a walk through a forest.

Who might you meet? Are the characters from other traditional tales or nursery rhymes?

Discuss ones you know such as The Gingerbread Man, Humpty Dumpty, the Three Little Pigs, Jack – from Jack and the Beanstalk, etc.

Explore other traditional tales and nursery rhymes for character ideas. You can find some here or you may have some traditional tales in your house:

(Adult supervision required)

Create a story plan for your new story by drawing pictures of each character you will meet, and labelling them.


Tuesday –

Return to the story plan created yesterday. Discuss the plan with an adult and add any new ideas or vocabulary which you want to include in your story.

Write your new story using these sentence starters to help:

Early one morning/one day/on a cold but bright sunny day...

First of all I met, ...

Not long after, I saw ...


Just then, ...

It wasn’t long before I spotted, ...

Reluctantly, I knocked on the door and ...

Check all sentences and punctuation together. Read your story aloud to an audience.

Discuss which activities you have already done and those you would like to do in the future.

Make a list of the activities you have done already.

Then select a few to write about, recounting the events, e.g.


I went paddling in the sea in Blackpool with my Dad. The sea water felt icy but didn’t mind. When I walked in the water, I stood on a stone and it hurt my foot! After that, my Dad bought me an ice cream with a chocolate flake and some strawberry sauce. It was a great day!

Now make a list of the activities you would like to do:




Check all sentences and punctuation together.


Thursday –

Do you know the story of Robin Hood? Watch this film clip which summarises the story of Robin Hood:

(Note: text may contain some American spellings).

Think about all you have found out about Robin Hood. Create a poem about him.

Choose either an acrostic poem or a shape poem. Below are some examples of each to help you.

Shape poems

You could use the shape of an arrow or Robin Hood’s hat or something different relating to Robin Hood.

Acrostic poems

You could use the words ROBIN HOOD or SHERWOOD FOREST or any other words that you think are suitable about Robin Hood.


Friday –

Discuss what you know about trees now.

Read this information about trees together:

(Note: text may contain some American spellings)

Complete the activity mats using the skills that you have learned this year

Mat 1

Mat 2

Mat 3

Mat 4

Mat 5



Build a bug hotel

Encourage insects to your garden by building them their very own residence using planks of wood or old pallets or crates piled up with bricks between the layers.

Your child can fill the gaps between the layers with things to make their visitors at home, such as cardboard tubes, shredded paper, feathers and pebbles, and keep checking every day to see who has moved in.


Flower crowns

This is a lovely activity for creative kids, and gives them opportunities to role-play being fairies, woodland nymphs or royalty.

Go for a walk and collect flowers, leaves and grasses along the way, which your child can then weave into a nature-inspired crown. They could make a classic daisy chain garland or knot grasses to create a wreath.

As an add-on learning activity, buy a flower identification guidebook or borrow one from the library so your child can identify the blooms and blossom they’ve gathered.


Build a den

Building a den is a brilliant back-to-nature challenge that will awaken your child’s inner caveman, and it’s a great project to get stuck into with a friend or sibling.

Find some thick, long sticks and challenge your child to create their own shelter, either by leaning them up against a tree, or by lashing them together with string at the top for a tipi-style den.

You could take an old sheet out with you to give their den-building more scope.

This is a good test of problem-solving skills that involves your child working out how to balance the sticks and make them stay standing, as well as providing an opportunity to be physically active.

Giant bubbles

This hands-on science activity is much more fun than blowing bubbles from a tiny pot.

Combine six cups of water, one cup of washing-up liquid, and half a tablespoon of glycerine (the magic ingredient, available from chemists).

Tie a piece of string of any length into a circle, dip it into the bubble mix and waft it around to make giant bubbles.

Your child can experiment with how much to mix the solution to make the best bubbles, and see which weather conditions are the best for bubble-blowing.



Have a go at the ancient art of Hapa Zome (also known as leaf bashing or printing).


For this you will need:

  • Some white cloth (like a bit of old sheet or a tea towel) or some thick paper
  • A hammer, mallet, smooth stone, thick stick or rolling pin
  • A selection of leaves and/or petals


Design and run your own treasure hunt.

  • Treasure hunts are great way to get everyone moving about and exploring the house and/or garden!
  • Watch our video for four fantastic ideas - a picture trail, a symbol trail a cryptic trail and a treasure map

 Week 5 29.06.20

You are now going to retell the story from the boy’s point of view (as if you were the boy). Remember to write your story as if you are the boy. Write in the past tense. As you write, try to include how you are feeling throughout.

Look at this structure to help with your writing.


You were happily toasting marshmallows on your campfire.

A monster sneaked up behind you from out of the lake.

You were terrified! Monster saw a marshmallow and began to drool.

You offered the marshmallow to the monster.

Monster wanted more so you happily gave him more until you ran out of marshmallows!

Draw/colour/ and label your monster with the ideas above. You could also make your monster with any craft materials you have available.

Dear …,

You won’t believe what happened to me today!

I have been flying! Peter, from Neverland, sprinkled some magic fairy dust on me and I could fly! We all soared up into the sky and glided past the tallest of buildings. At one point we were right next to Big Ben! (Etc.)

Write you own poem about flight.  You may wish to use the title If I Could Fly, If I Had Wings, or create your own title.  Try to use some of the interesting vocabulary you’ve collected from the poems you’ve read.  You could also use a thesaurus to find synonyms for your words.  


Don’t worry about making your poem rhyme – it doesn’t need to! Your poem can just be a series of sentences about what you would do if you could fly. 


Write your poem out neatly, illustrate it and share it with members of your household.

Gravity Painting for Kids



How to Do Gravity Painting

Step 1: Prep Your Work Surface

Prep your work space with a drop cloth and an easel or support to hold your foam board.

Step 2: Water Down the Paint

Mix your paint with a splash of water. You want to water down the paint so it can flow easily down the paper.

Step 3: Drip the Paint

Drip the paint on the paper with a pipet (medicine dropper) or spoon.

Watch gravity do it’s work. Your artist may wish to manipulate the drips by turning the board as the drips run down.

Step 4: Use the Drips as a Creative Prompt

Once your paper has dried, ask your child “what you can turn the drips into?”. You may wish to turn your painting upside down or on its side to spark an idea. Use your imagination to think creatively about what you see in the drips.

Step 5: Add Collage Elements

Add colour and creativity to turn your drips of paint into a work of art.

You could use collage techniques by painting with glue over tissue paper. You could also paint or add colour with markers instead of creating a tissue paper collage.

Examples -

Ask your child questions along the way to stretch their creative and critical thinking skills. The great thing about process art is there is no wrong way to do it. Let your child lead the project with their imagination.
