Course Information

  • Course Title:Lost Words: Nature Literacy for Educators
  • 1 day course

Join us for a day of exploring nature through the curriculum using literacy, art and music. Through sensory observation, we will bring nature back into lesson planning.

The book ‘Lost Words’ (Jackie Morris & Robert Mcfarlene, 2018), stands for a wild childhood; a childhood where words such as Acorn, Otter, Lark and Dandelion are still part of the rich landscape of discovery and imagination that every childhood should embrace. It is a book of the British countryside and celebrates the poetry of nature words and the magic of nature and language for all.

‘Lost Words’ has been gifted to schools up and down the country. This ‘literacy’ day will reconnect and reinvigorate a love of nature through words, as we explore our emotional and natural literacy using simple techniques applicable to any class or group. Through sensory activity and observation, we will look at the narrative of story, prose and poetry. Combining simple sketch and painting techniques, in the outdoors, we will make deeper connections with the nature around us and learn how to do the same for the children, young people and families we work with.
