We are currently developing a variety of outdoor learning spaces at Walthamstow Wetlands in preparation for a series of educational school sessions which will commence February 2018 for Nursery to Year Six pupils. With a duration of two hours each, the sessions will cover a range of topics in an engaging and interactive way and will be cross-curricular as well as linked to the National Curriculum.
EYFS topics will include imaginative outdoor play and movement, homes, plants and animals.
Key Stage 1 topics will include identifying plants, exploring animals in their local environment, designing and engineering structures and creating nature art.
Key Stage 2 topics will cover the structure and functions of plants, the water cycle, classifying animals, food chains, adaptation, map work and improving the environment.
Risk Assessments will be provided and our staff have enhanced DBS checks and are trained in first aid.
Walthamstow Wetlands is easily accessible by public transport. There is also a car park on site, however parking is limited.
