KS1 Dreamcatchers - Forest School

KS1 Dreamcatchers - Forest School

This was done in Forest School with a Year 2 class (they are half completed in the accompanying photo). We also read "The Crow's Tale" which is a Native legend with a nice moral and lovely pictures. Included are: Detailed Lesson Plan Examples (I printed these and stuck them on card to pass around in the forest) Dream Catcher History (to read to the class) Instructions on how to make a net (We didn't make proper nets with Year 2 but this could be used with older children)

This Aboriginal story (language group unknown) is a creation story about turtles. It is in PowerPoint format. Use this story to provide an Aboriginal perspective in literacy. The title slide references the source of the story. The final slide provides a link to an animated version of the story of Wayamba (Wayambeh). Compare representations of the story. Ask students to make their own representation.
