  Schools

Wild Earth has a rich experience of delivering bespoke educational programmes to primary and secondary schools. We are passionate about working creatively within the school environment to inspire and bring out the best in pupils, teachers, parents and the school as a whole. Working with Wild Earth is a real opportunity to create sustainable positive change at your School. We have the expertise in developing the creative curriculum and teacher's creative practice as essayed through our past experience of delivering high quality Cre8us (previously known as Creative Partnerships) projects. Our methodology includes weaving together nature, art, recycling, music, drama and adventure themes across many subject areas. Cross-curricular links through PSHE, History, Geography, Science and Literacy, are strongly represented in our work.

"To listen to all the new techniques,

 strategies and ways of thinking and

 working that you have introduced in

 your creative way to our teachers and

 realised."

The Outdoor Classroom

Aboriginal Australian Art, Music and Culture

Wild Earth offers a unique programme that incorporates :

- exploring the history, art, science of Aboriginal culture

- learning from the stories in dot painting and discovering our own stories

- learn to play, make and paint a didgeridoo and take it home

- create Aboriginal art for a large display

- learn about indigenous rock art and make paints from rocks

Environmental Arts and Crafts

These workshops are inspired by a study of the local environment - school grounds or local parks. Activities use recycled materials to create musical instruments, crafts, story telling and shadow puppet plays.

This has been an effective vehicle in delivering projects on the History of  World War II and

creative writing workshops.
