Pride in parks
Primary pupils from across the city will take part in an award-winning learning project about wildlife and the value of the city's parks.
More than 7,000 have taken part in the Play Style project since it was created in 1999 by Hull City Council park rangers – and in that time it has grown from working with eight to 39 schools.
As part of the project, which won a community initiative award in 2000, each school is invited to the council's educational site at Noddle Hill, where pupils take part in pond dipping, tree trails and environment work.
"Children love the project and are very receptive to our message that these are their parks so they should look after them," said parks development officer Howard Flitton.
"We also help teachers meet requirements at Key Stage Two of the National Curriculum."
