Hoodwinked Arts and Literacy Education Programme
Robin’s Tales Resources Area

Fifty-two schools from across Nottingham will join in with the excitement of Hoodwinked through the Robin’s Tales arts and literacy education programme, which brings the Robin Hood legend to life and re-imagines the tales for a new audience. And, here is where we keep the school resources!

You should already have a copy of the Hoodwinked: Robin’s Tales Resource Pack, both as a printed copy and via email as a PDF. Here you can also find information and sign-up forms for other elements of the programme. For more of an oversight of whole Hoodwinked: Robin’s Tales programme, please see our Schools page.

The Pack

The resource pack is designed for pupils aged 5-11 years old in Key Stages 1 & 2. It is flexible and easy to use, offering a framework for delivering a raft of creative cross-curricular activities. We strongly recommend that you look through the whole pack to gain an overall picture of its contents and the possibilities for its use.

Whichever age group of pupils you are working with, and whatever theme you choose to explore, hopefully the pack will give you some useful starters and ideas to share with students and colleagues. The emphasis of the pack is on group participation, which is both a fun way and effective for pupils to gain a better understanding of the project and feel greater ownership of it.

If you cannot find your Resource Pack, please email gareth@oppnotts.org.uk.
