Through the Woods

Help Hansel and Gretel navigate their way through the forest to their Aunt Candy’s house by first plotting the dangers that live in the forest, then creating a route that avoids them.

Geography KS1: Use simple compass directions (north, south, east and west) and locational and directional language [for example, near and far; left and right], to describe the location of features and routes on a map.

Geography KS1: Use aerial photographs and plan perspectives to recognise landmarks and basic human and physical features; devise a simple map; and use and construct basic symbols in a key.

Features of a House

Design a happy new home for Hansel, Gretel and Aunt Candy using 2-D shapes and colouring pencils

Mathematics Year 1:  Recognise and name common 2-D shapes [for example, rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles].

Mathematics Year 2: Identify and describe the properties of 2-D shapes, including the number of sides and line symmetry in a vertical line.

Scheduling Chores

Read the time each chore must be done and draw the hands on the clock to match. Then, list the chores in the order they must be completed.

Dear Diary

Complete a diary entry as Hansel or Gretel describing Aunt Candy’s house and the area around it.

English Year 1 : Write sentences by sequencing sentences to form short narratives

English Year 2 : Expanded noun phrases for description and specification [for example, the blue butterfly, plain flour, the man in the moon]
