About this activity

The 'Walking words' activity, inspired by the work of artist Richard Long, uses the parks to learn about the natural environment and to build vocabulary leading to the creation of a Richard Long-style artwork or collage poem drawn from observation and evoking mood.

Suitable for Key Stage 2 and adaptable for Key Stage 1.
