Hoodwinked Arts and Education Programme
Robin’s Tales – Where stories take flight
Schools can join in with the excitement of Hoodwinked through Robin’s Tales arts and education programme, which brings the Robin Hood legend to life and refreshes the tales for a young new audience.
Robins are swooping on Nottingham in 2018 for one of the biggest arts events the city has ever seen but they are going to need somewhere to sit and rest their weary wings…
Robin’s Tales offers schools the chance to decorate their very own BookBench as part of this amazing learning programme. The BookBenches sit on the Hoodwinked trail alongside the Robins and at the end of the trail will return to schools as a permanent reminder of the Hoodwinked summer of fun.
The programme includes a detailed education pack full of creative ideas and resources, aligned to both the National Curriculum and Arts Award programme. The BookBenches provide the perfect opportunity to explore and creatively decorate the bench and the pack is filled with resources and ideas for lessons on stories, reading and creating modern retelling of the tales.
