You may already have seen this wonderful book by author, Robert MacFarlane and artist, Jackie Morris called ‘The Lost Words’.
Here’s a link to a blog post by Jackie Morris about why the book is so important for children (and adults). She explains the significance of keeping hold of words for wild places and the natural world as well as the collaborative process of planning and writing the book.
There is also a free “An Explorer’s Guide to The Lost Words” by Eva Muir to accompany the book and encourage us to explore it further. It is available here along with posters and ideas about how to use the book to inspire learning and enjoyment.
If you use the book as an inspiration for learning you can post what you make on this Padlet. It is also a source of ideas for your work with children of course.
A successful crowdfunder campaign was run to get the book into every school in Scotland and this has been followed by other counties in England.
