How can we respect, protect and enjoy our environment?

This interactive session is based around the three main principles of the countryside code: respect, protect and enjoy. We will learn how to achieve all of these principles when visiting our local parks, and how we can each make a positive impact on the environment. 


How does this session link to the National Curriculum? (Key Stage 1 & 2)
  • What improves and harms their local, natural and built environments and about some of the ways people look after them.
  • To realise that people and other living things have needs, and that they have responsibilities to meet them.

  • Why and how rules and laws are made and enforced, why different rules are needed in different situations and how to take part in making and changing rules.
