The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.

There is ample choice for children to engage with a variety of habitats to promote language, discussion and creative writing.  From Autumn 21, the new Poetry Walk with 13 poetry boards, set in natural woodland, includes a broad range of topics.

Topics include:-

  • Science – Gravity, Bugs, Beasts, Night animals, Trees and their role in Nature
  • History – Roman and Battle of Evesham, memories of the village long ago
  • PSHE – Exploring the senses, listening and observing, wellbeing, our role in nature

A booklet with the full versions of the poems and a little background information will be available as a teaching resource.



The Trust is a Charity run by volunteers.  It was set up to protect the environment for the benefit of the village and its environs and aims to provide education about the environment. This is a practical example to introduce the children to the concepts of citizenship and caring for the planet. Being out in Nature is increasingly recognised as an important factor in Wellbeing and enables the children to listen and observe in a peaceful environment.
