Share your Shakespearian woodland words and images

Tell us about your class trip to the woods to earn two points on our Green Tree Schools Award.

If you've visited a wood with your pupils, we'd love to see your photos, stories and comments. And to celebrate Shakespeare Week 2019, why not try it with a Shakespearian twist.

Describe your experience using Shakespearian language about nature, using our teacher notes and pupil worksheet for inspiration.

Encourage your students to think about how the visit made them feel. Was it what they expected? What sights, sounds and smells did they experience? What was their favourite bit?

Your pupils can share their experiences in a variety of ways - by writing a review of their woodland adventure, recording their comments on audio or video, creating a piece of outdoor art, or making a drawing or painting of the wood.
