All of the 'Wood Workers' sheets can be downloaded from this website
as pdf files. These can be accessed from the pages on downloadable
materials for Key Stage 1,
Key Stage 2 and Key
Stage 3. In addition, many of the materials on the individual
Heritage Woodlands are available in a simplified form on this website
by clicking on the relevant woodland on the location
map. However, some of the resources, such as the large-scale
Ordnance Survey base maps and aerial photographs are found exclusively
in the printed education packs.

Get, set ... Grow
Get, set ... Grow' is a resource pack which provides teachers in
the South Yorkshire Forest with local information and resources
to help them deliver the National Curriculum through environmental
education. It is produced by the South Yorkshire Forest cluster
group of Forest Education
Get, set ... Grow consists of three parts.
Part 1 contains directories covering three areas:
- Countryside sites, farms and other places to visit in the South
- Local contacts for help with forest and countryside education
- Forest and countryside learning materials.
Part 2 contains teaching resources designed to assist
teachers in delivering Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum through
practical activities in the environment, both within the school
grounds and further afield. Each unit of work consists of a pupil
sheet and accompanying teacher's notes.
Part 3 of the pack is 'Tree File', a CD ROM
containing a database of 32 locally occurring tree species. This
can be used as a teacher resource, as well as for research and I.C.T.
work by children.
Although 'get, set ... Grow' is currently out of print, a new
edition is currently being prepared for publication during 2002.
As part of this, the scope of the pack is being extended to cover
Key Stages 1 and 3. In the meantime however, the teaching resources
from part 2 of the pack can be downloaded from the Forest
Education Initiative website. Direct links to those materials
most relevant to work in the Heritage Woodlands are given in the
section of this website providing downloadable
pupil and teacher resources for Key Stage 2.
