Using the parklands, venues and waterways as an inspiring learning environment, teachers and pupils can visit the Park and enjoy the experience in our amazing outdoor classroom.
The Go! Outside learning resources challenge pupils to answer the question “How can we support wildlife in our homes, schools and cities?’ Pupils are asked to explore a variety of habitats and species of wildlife that are present in the Park or local community. Whether your activities take place in the classroom (bronze), in the local community (silver) or on the Park (gold), our Wildlife Safari booklet, information sheet and animal photographs are sure to bring them to life.
Bronze Activities – Create a high-quality anatomical drawing of one of five animals that makes its home in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Write a sentence or paragraph to describe the animal, including its appearance and the function of its parts.
Silver Activities – Inspired by the rich wildlife of the Park, undertake an environmental study during a visit to a local park or open space. Explore, observe, ask questions and collect samples in this space to better understand the animals, plants and man-made features of the local community. Based on the visit, study the wildlife in greater detail or make a structure to support wildlife in the local community.
Gold Activities – Explore the different wildlife as part of a visit to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, completing a detailed study on three habitats. Explore, observe, ask questions and collect samples in these habitats to better understand the plants and animals in the Park. Based on the visit, apply learning to identify an animal to support and plan and make a man-made structure that will support wildlife in the Park or the local area.
