There are 25 year reception children in Goodall class.
This term we will be learning about Woodlands.
Some interesting facts for children....
- Woodlands are a little more open than forests – woodlands have space to let a bit of light in between trees, while forests have so many trees that it’s actually pretty dark when you walk around.
- There are many different kinds of trees, but a couple of the main groups are coniferous trees and deciduous trees.
- Coniferous trees are trees that produce seeds in cones, like pine trees and spruce trees (Christmas trees!)
- Deciduous trees are trees that lose their leaves in the winter, but grow them back in the summer.
- Fruits and nuts found in the forest make a perfect meal for animals who live there, so they don’t have to search too far to find food.
- Forests also provide shelter for animals, whether it’s within the tree roots or trunks, or high up in the branches.
- Animals and insects who live in forest and woodland habitats rely on the trees to give them what they need – shelter, food, and protection from other creatures higher up the food chain. They also use the streams and ponds within forests to get water and (if they’re the sort of animal that eats them) fish.
- Because we use trees to make paper, we need to be careful about what that does to forest habitats. One way to care for forests is to recycle paper.
