Overview and Outcomes:

This is a two-week planning sequences that uses The Tin Forest and also makes reference to the Q Files Website. This sequence works best if the children are finding about forests and rainforests as they go through the story, rather than in advance.

Synopsis of Text:

"There was once a wide, windswept place, near nowhere and close to forgotten that was filled with all the things that no one wanted." So begins Helen Ward's tale of the Tin Forest where an old man lives who tidies the rubbish and dreams of a better place. With faith, ingenuity and hard work, he transforms a junkyard into a wonderland in this poetic modern fable.
