Park Explorer has been developed by the London Parks and Gardens Trust, with the generous assistance of the Heritage Lottery Fund, to provide information and education resources based around London's rich wealth of parks and open spaces.
In this pilot phase of the project, four London Boroughs have been selected, namely Enfield, Greenwich, Newham and Wandsworth. It is hoped to extend into further boroughs in the future.
This area contains notes and guidance for teachers, suggestions for classroom activities, details of how the work contained within this website fits within the National Curriculum, and invitations to take part in the ongoing project. There is a comprehensive Curriculum Grid which details the NC key skills covered by the different activities as well as highlighting relevance within Breadth of Study and QCA schemes.
Note that although the activities have been developed with a Key Stage 2 curriculum focus and target audience, many of the ideas and concepts can easily be adapted for work with other levels of students.
