We will use Robert Macfarlanes's beautiful new book "The Lost Words" to discover the amazing variety of plants, animals,  birds and insects at Killerton. We will spend time in the orchard and in the woods and you will have the chance to write observations,  poems and short pieces of prose.  During the day, there will also be time for  observational drawing,  and making of group sculptures.  We will use all of our senses to bring "The lost words" to life! Towards the end of the day we will share our work  around the campfire.

Please wear warm clothes (trousers not skirts), bring a warm jumper and  a waterproof coat, and wellies if you have them. Pupils will need a packed lunch and drink.
