Why not take part in our amazing LITTLE ACORN COMPETITION launching today to celebrate National Tree Week, there are also some terrific resources all about trees below:

Ages 4 - 6

  • Learn how to set up a School Orchard with this brilliant book produced by Learning through Landscapes all about growing fruit trees in school grounds.
  • These Wonderful Woodland resources have teacher notes for primary and secondary school teachers that will help consider how important trees are to humans and the potential threats trees and woodland areas face.
  • This Life in and Around an Ancient Tree poster describes a scene of an ancient tree with some of our rarest deadwood loving species including bats, birds, beetles, fungi, lichen and mosses and the parts of a tree they call home.

Ages 7 - 11

  • This Acorns activity is one in a series of six maths worksheets that can be used as a standalone resource or alongside the Boris the Badger children's book by Brian Hainsworth.
  • Peruse through this Orchards East project resource which has a range of lesson plans, for Key stage 2 Art, Design and Technology, English, Geography, History, Maths and Science, which are suitable for both classroom-based and orchard-based learning.
  • Why not try this Wildlife Habitats on the Farm resource produced by LEAF Education which supports learners to understand that farmers provide habitats on their farms for wildlife. Pupils have the opportunity to identify farmland habitats and the creatures that may live in those habitats.

Ages 11 - 16

  • This Woodland Conservation video produced by the NGO Education Trust demonstrates just some of the ways in which game & conservation managers conserve the balance and diversity of species in the Woodlands, an environment that is as important for biodiversity as it is for human wellbeing.
  • The film and accompanying fieldwork methodology sheets in this Fieldwork in the Forest resource have been developed and tested by forest educators and secondary geography teachers in an Oxfordshire woodland.
  • Agroforestry farms can be productive yet also contain high levels of biodiversity which benefits humans, animals and the environment.
