Welcome to This Other World Week of Journey to the Ugly Bug Ball!

This week we will be learning This Other World by Will Todd. This piece takes us on a magical journey through the forest to the other world of the fantastical Ugly Bug Ball!

Here’s a little poem to get you in the mood for an enchanted journey:

The Enchanted Forest Poem by Joseph T. Renaldi

The forest is peaceful and quiet.
I appreciate its immense cover of shade,
And I feel focused and comfortable
In this sanctuary nature has made.

I feel a sense of enchantment
In the cool, refreshing air,
As I seek the hidden secrets
That the forest had to bear.

Create a woodland picture

For this week’s craft project we would like you to create a woodland picture using things you find in nature. Go and hunt around your garden or go on a walk and find leaves, twigs and other natural things to make a magical picture. You will find some examples of what you can make in the download below!
