Topic - The Enchanted Wood

Our weekly lessons are on Google Drive.


Our 'Create' topic this term is based on the arts - Magical Worlds is our school theme.


Our current topic, and magical world for Year 2, is The Enchanted Wood. If we were in school, we would have been reading The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton. It would be great if you could get hold of a copy to read at home! If not, click the link below for an audio version of the book.

If we were in school right now, we would be creating lots of things to turn our classroom into an enchanted wood. So get creative at home so that we can use all the magical things you have made to create a Year 2 magical woodland when we get back to school. Check out the links below:

Here are some other ideas you could have a go at!


Sketch and shade (from dark to light) a spring garden flower. Use the internet to research British woodland and forest trees. Make a list of how many you can find.
Go on a walk and make balk rubbings of different trees. How many different types of trees can you spot? Go on a walk and make leaf rubbings. How many different types of leaves can you spot>
Make a shopping list of food to have on a summer's day picnic. Plan a summer's day picnic. Make your picnic and find a lovely, sunny spot to eat it in.

David Hockney

David Hockney is regarded by many as Britain's greatest living artist. If you remember Year 2, we looked at some of his artwork in the Autumn term (our Save the Planet topic - when we looked at his paintings based on water images). This time we will be using his images to look at woodlands, trees and landscapes.


Hockney brings his own unique style to landscape painting - the bold colours instantly grab hold of you and pull you into his interpretation of the Yorkshire countryside. Below are images of some of the brilliant artwork from this modern master that we will use to inspire our own landscape artworks for this term. I think that these works of art will transport us into our own magical woodland world!
