Why are green spaces so important?

Wednesday 27 September 2023

As geographers, it’s vital to understand the world around you and the many benefits that physical features can provide.

Y6 have been exploring what urban green spaces are, where they can be found and why they’re so important.

Evie said, “It’s not just one person’s job, it’s everyone’s responsibility to keep our locality (like green spaces) clean, tidy and safe.”

This linked nicely with our Living and Learning theme of the week – I know that rights come with responsibilities.

Have a look at some of the fantastic posters explaining the many benefits of green spaces.
