Song of the wood
Listen to the woods in summer – what can you hear?
Next time you’re in the woods, stand still and listen for the sounds of summer.
- Listen carefully – can you hear insects and animals chirping and snuffling?
- Try coming back another day, or when it’s raining. Does the wood sound different?
- Write a poem using the sounds you hear
Woods have a different song during the morning and at night, and in different seasons. Note down what you can hear each time you visit.
