Primary School Assemblies

The Parks Trust can support local primary schools with assemblies that bring a range of outdoor topics to life.

These can be delivered in-person, virtually, or via a pre-recorded video.

What lies beneath?

Milton Keynes has lakes, rivers, a canal and many ponds across the parkland.  This gives lots of opportunities to explore interesting habitats, but there are many hazards associated with this environment.

In this assembly, a member of The Parks Trust team explains how to stay safe in the wetter parts of our parkland.  This talk will cover the dangers of ice in the Winter and swimming in the Summer.

Looking after the Environment

We are lucky to have so many wonderful green spaces in Milton Keynes - not only to visit ourselves, but also as vital habitats for plants and creatures large and small. 

In this assembly we will discuss the many issues surrounding litter in our parks and the huge impact this can have on the environment as a whole, as well as the people and animals that call Milton Keynes home. 

School pupils should leave the assembly filled with a greater understanding of the role they play in keeping our greenspaces clean and safe, alongside a greater respect for our environment.

Project 'Hogwatch'

Hedgehogs are one of our most iconic species, seen in gardens and along hedgerows throughout the UK. Sadly, these spiky creatures are becoming much scarcer, but Milton Keynes parklands are known to be good places for them to live.

Find out about these special creatures, how to encourage them into your school grounds and local gardens, and about our MKHogwatch citizen science project!
