Our forests give us many things like books, tissues, furniture and so much more. The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) helps take care of forests and the people and wildlife who call them home. These resources will give an insight into how this works and allows children to explore our role within it.
We are often told to draw what we see, rather than just what we think we see. However, this lesson encourages pupils to draw what they want to show, rather than just what they see. To do this, pupils will have to really understand the object in front of them by closely observing it, before then trying to get this across in their leaf drawing.
Using the fabulous Sound Collector poem written by Roger McGough the children are given the chance to collect their very own sounds in a lesson perfect, not only for creative writing, but also for developing excellent speaking and listening skills.
