Hot Poets - Jonny Fluffypunk, Put the Children by a Tree
Science: Year 2 • 4m 9s
Hot Poet: Jonny Fluffypunk
Matched with: Forest Schools Birmingham
Poem Focus: Forest School
It is Forest School Birmingham’s deepest wish that young people and those working in education awaken to the vital role that the natural world plays in the health and well-being of our species and that, by creating opportunities for children, young people and educators to find healing and peace in nature, those individuals will become attuned and empathetic to the natural environment around them and be more inclined to become champions of the Earth.
A respectful relationship with nature needs to start as soon as a child becomes conscious of the natural world, and that child needs constant reminders that there are few things more pleasurable than playing outdoors (without any plastic props), building a den or pond dipping… It is their aim that all schools should have regular interaction with nature as part of each school day.
