Congratulations on achieving your Gold award

When you reach gold, you'll unlock these two special platinum projects to take you to the final stage of our Green Tree Schools award.

Both of these projects are worth five points each. You can do them in any order but we suggest you complete them at different times of the year to allow your pupils to appreciate the changing seasons.

You need to complete both of these projects to gain your platinum award. You can chart your progress using the platinum projects checklist in your online account.

A woodland perspective

Try looking at the woodland from a different perspective. This could be a photograph taken lying on your tummy or up high as a bird would see it. Back in the classroom it’s time to celebrate the different views they’ve found with some imaginative artwork in a variety of media.

Wild trails

This activity encourages pupils to create and map personal trails around a local wood, with a focus on the animals and plants that live there. They will then work together in the classroom to create a class trail to share with the rest of the school.
