Where My Wellies Take Me

Have your wellies helped you explore woods, discover minibeasts, climb a tree, wade through forest streams, build a den or go on a woodland adventure?

To help celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Teaching Trees programme, the Royal Forestry Society is inviting children, schools and young people’s organisations to enter a free poetry competition inspired by Michael and Clare Morpurgo’s remarkable book Where My Wellies Take Me.

There are three categories Age 5 - 7 (Key Stage 1), Age 7 - 11 (Key Stage 2) and Age 11 - 13 (Key Stage 3). Winners will be announced on World Book Day (5 March) and they and their school/organisation will each receive a hardback copy of Where my Wellies Take Me. Closing date for entries is Monday 24th February. Full details here

Where My Wellies Take Me was voted by Teaching Trees’ Education Officers as one of their top 20 books for inspiring imaginations and creativity when visiting a forest. View the full list of books

Teaching Trees already operates in nine regions in England and is hoping to announce an additional three Education Officers during 2020.
