Announcing our fabulous new free resource for schools: 'Trees for Learning, Every Season Outdoors'.
Children and young people like the inspirational Greta Thunberg
are increasingly taking the lead in campaigning for action on climate change. We're encouraging schools to harness this wave of enthusiasm for the environment by engaging children with outdoor learning.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has urged countries to plant trees in their billions. England's Community Forests are together responding to that need locally. Trees for Learning is part of Defra's plan to plant a million trees with primary schools by 2020. We've already planted over 100,000 trees with schools and now we want other schools to share in some of the activities we've developed along the way.
The 55 page booklet designed for EYFS, KS1 and KS2 is packed full of tried and tested practical and creative ideas to get children out of the classroom and into the natural environment.
It's user-friendly, beautifully illustrated and designed to link with the curriculum. And it's completely free to download
, for schools and parents.
