Winnie the Pooh has been drafted in by the Conservators of Ashdown Forest to help raise children's awareness of the local landscape. A Winnie the Pooh "story sack" which links the famous bear and his adventures to National Curriculum themes can be borrowed from the Ashdown Forest Centre.The story sack is one of a number of education resources designed to help teachers use the Forest for cross-curricular activities. For details of how to hire please contact the Ashdown Forest Centre: 01342 823583. Other resources include High Weald Heroes Outdoor Activity Cardsthat teachers can use when taking children outside and a debate pack entitled "Nature v Nurture" which examines tree felling and its significance on Ashdown Forest.
The project has been funded by the Weald Forest Ridge Landscape Partnership Scheme.
