Curriculum linked resources

Children using the nature detectives leaf ID sheet in the woods

We have developed a range of KS2 and KS3 curriculum-linked resources to help you teach your pupils about woods and trees.

Our materials can be used to support and inspire outdoor learning, as well as classroom-based lessons. They range from tree planting to natural crafts to the study of ancient trees. Subjects covered include maths, literacy and science.

We are currently updating all of our resources to reflect the new 2014 curriculum. New materials will be added to this page when they are completed.

KS2 resources

We have created some engaging activities to support our free trees for schools. They include measuring and exploring a hedge, food chains, storytelling and natural craft ideas.
