WALT: create our own mini-national parks


What is a national park?

National parks are known as Britain's breathing spaces. National Parks are areas of protected countryside that everyone can visit and where people live, work and shape the landscape.


Who set up National Parks?

John Muir! We learnt that he was an all rounder - an explorer, adventurer, a mountain climber, a botantist, a writer and a dreamer. His message was that we all need to experience, care and enjoy wild places. A message still relevant today.


After researching and locating national parks, Year 6 followed in the footsteps of John Muir and create one of their own. Also, they gave someone else a guided tour of their park and told them about their park's special qualities.
