What are Junior Park Rangers?
We are proud to be Junior Rangers, working alongside The Parks Trust to inspire a love for the natural world among our classmates.
What do we do?
We are lucky to have lots of local parks and green spaces to enjoy and as members of The Parks Trust, our job is to read bulletins in an assembly each month to share news with our school about our local parks. We have our own noticeboard to keep updated with news, lead competitions and run stalls at school events. As part of our role we get to go to Parks Trust workshops and nature events held especially for us and Junior Rangers from other local schools.
A huge thank you to our team of Rangers for sharing their love of nature with us last year and well done for leading our school to become winners of the Outstanding Junior Park Ranger Award Runner Up Prize 2019. Congratulations to the team for also achieving their Bronze John Muir Awards, recognising all the work they have done to encourage others in the school to care about our environment and enjoy time in the great outdoors.
We have lots of projects and ideas for the future. Here are just a few:
Projects so far this year
Our team of Junior Rangers have been keeping busy sharing their love of nature with our school. Since carrying out their Hogwatch survey at the end of October, the Rangers have carried out a number of important jobs to help encourage a greener environment for our school and support younger children to grow a love for wildlife and the outdoors. Activities have included working with a group of their friends to take part in regular lunchtime litter picks across school, taking part in the RSPB Big Schools Birdwatch and joining some of our younger children in Forest School. Younger children have loved taking part in activities with the Junior Rangers and have especially enjoyed taking part in nature trails, time trials and learning about different bird calls.
