Age Group: KS3-4 Subjects: English, Art, History

The natural world has inspired artists of all kinds. In the first part of this session, pupils will learn about different artists who have been inspired by nature, landscape, and wildlife. They will also explore the poems of current Poet Laureate Simon Armitage, who worked with Northumberland National Park to write 6 special poems about the beautiful landscapes he saw around him. These poems can be accessed via our Poems in the Air app, and in the second part of the session, pupils will take a walk along to Sycamore Gap, in order to hear more about the creation of the app and to spend some time writing their own poetry or creating their own art inspired by the landscape.
