KS2: LEEDS 2023: Forest — Under Our Feet Resource


As part of This is a FOREST, LEEDS 2023 developed a creative learning programme for schools to engage in the project’s themes, exploring land use and considering what might happen if we work with, and not against nature. LEEDS 2023 commissioned freelance creative producer May McQuade to develop a scheme of work entitled Under Our Feet in collaboration with local community organisation Hyde Park Source. In the summer of 2023, 15 schools took part in the project, using these resources to learn about nature, human geography, ecosystems, and land use, and developing a small plot of land on their school site. We also funded teachers to undertake Forest School Level 1 training to develop their teaching practice. As part of the legacy plan for LEEDS 2023 these resources are now free to use, and we hope many more schools will engage with these themes and enjoy learning about nature.
