Learning Opportunities

Pre-Visit

The questions could be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are bearing this in mind when on their tree-climb, focusing on the aesthetic aspects of their experience.

Post-Visit

Completion of the English (writing - composition) resource/s linked to this document

Learning Outcomes

Students will demonstrate their creative writing skills. They will demonstrate evidence of planning as well as showing that they can make language choices appropriate to an identified purpose and audience. Students will reflect on an experience and create a new text from this stimulus.
