Free Posters

Woodlands.co.uk have launched a range of educational posters for people who love woodlands.

The posters are designed for primary school children (from 5-11 years old) and tie in with different stages of the national curriculum. Once printed and displayed these attractive artworks will be useful for teachers, parents as educational aids and for children who want to learn more about British trees and woodland wildlife. The A3/A4 posters are free to download below.

Our first three posters are by illustrator Kate Sutton and are presented in her attractive, accessible style. They cover the following topics

1.Know Your Trees

An identification poster featuring seven trees you’re likely to find in a British woodland. The stylised artwork shows overall tree shape, leaf, and the nut or berry of the Sycamore, Oak, Birch, Beech, Holly Yew and Pine.
