Corris and Pennal project PDF Print

Dates: February to April 201

Location: Coed Gwern, Pantperthog

Client group: Primary years 3, 4, 5 and 6

Volunteers: volunteers were involved in many of the sessions to gain experience in outdoor education.

The Woodlands of the Dyfi Valley project was born following Dyfi Woodlands engagement with the Dyfi Biosphere Education Group. The Dyfi Valley has been recognised by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve based on the unique natural and cultural heritage, and use of local resources.

Following an INSET teacher training day Dyfi Woodlands was invited by Corris and Pennal primary schools to deliver sessions about woodlands in the Dyfi Biosphere area. We ran six sessions with pupils from years 3, 4, 5 and 6.

The sessions included mapping, modern and historical woodland management and timber use, biodiversity, sustainability and looking into the future management of woodlands. The programme included a visit to Esgair Timber Company to look at modern timber management and processing, and a trip to the Centre for Alternative Technology to explore the sustainable use of timber resources.

Sessions linked to the ESDGC, geography, history, biology and design and technology curricula.
