Art Home Learning Challenges


Liverpool John Moores university have asked us to design a logo for their new Natural curriculum hub. This will be an area where teachers can discuss ideas for teaching outdoors- imagine doing Maths on the field, English in the wooded area or Art in the school gardens. Think about an image that you could design to promote learning outdoors. 

The winning school will receive a free forest school session at John Moores, a certificate and your design will be used on official documents.  See the downloads below for details of the competition. Designs can be by hand (submitted by photo) or designed on the computer. Please email your entries back to school by July 10th 2020.
