Primary schools

We want children of all ages to be able to access the Park and make the most of London’s newest outdoor classroom – inspiring and exciting future generations about east London, and introducing them to new skills and career options.

For primary schools all around the country, we have produced a range of free lesson plans for teachers who want to bring their pupils to learn on the Park. Lesson plans are available at Key Stages 1 and 2 for Geography, Literacy, Numeracy and Science and can be downloaded here.

  • We are working with the London Wildlife Trust to deliver free National Curriculum-linked education sessions at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park during the Summer term. 

    As part of this, there are a range of sessions schools can choose from on the Park- including exploring habitats, animals, plants, pollination, maps, and the legacy of the London 2012 Games. So far we have worked with Kingsmead, Downsell, Gainsborough and  Woodgrange Primary schools and we are currently looking at plans to work with more in future.

  • For schools based in the London Boroughs of Newham, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Hackney we run the Go! Network, which aims to connect local schools to the opportunities within the Park. Go! offers schools a regular newsletter; an assembly pack with information on the regeneration plans for the Park; a plaque to display in the school; and a range of information to be displayed on the Go! noticeboard, along with teacher sanctuary evenings and sessions. 

    Through the network, we keep schools up to date about the educational opportunities that exist within the Park.
