The Royal Forestry Society currently works with landowners and Primary Schools in England to offer educational visits to local woodlands. The curriculum linked sessions give children the opportunity to:
• learn about trees, woodlands and forestry in a hands-on and fun way
• gain an appreciation of woodlands, a value for wildlife, timber and for enjoyment
Tir Coed will firstly adapt the English provision into the Welsh curriculum, ensuring all teaching resources are made available in Welsh and then deliver a pilot programme across 44 schools in Ceredigion over two academic years.
The sessions will be led by an experienced Educational Officer and are designed to excite and inform children about their local woodland heritage and the importance of woodlands for them today and in the future.
