Resources

The teaching resources here are aimed at specialist and non specialist educators. They model creative approaches and practical activities, using film, photography and simple arts activities that can easily be adapted for the classroom, home and school grounds where pupils may not always be able to visit the site.

 

Working creatively, quietly or otherwise, opens up space for discussion and debate on local and global natural world and environmental issues.

 

Each Art & Design activity can be used to enrich other areas of the curriculum. You will find pathways to english, maths, science and design and technology.

Exploring these processes and techniques will support independent thinking and creativity, helping children and young people understand and engage with the natural world around them.

Whether it’s a particular skill, technique, topic or curriculum area, you can use the search bar to find what you need.

You can also submit resources and project examples you have made or found  to share outcomes with other educators.
