Education is not a matter of getting facts and sowing them within brains, but that it is an attitude of mind that you teach children to find out for themselves.

We offer a wide range of bespoke experimental outdoor learning opportunities to bring subjects to life in a broad and balanced way. Nature is an amazing ‘classroom’ and offers a freedom and sense of adventure that we all benefit from and can improve attainment, increase meaningful engagement, and encourages problem solving, communication and resilience.

Curriculum subjects can be brought to life outside the classroom both in school grounds and in the local areas offering pupils the opportunity to gain first-hand, practical experience of the natural world.

Curriculum topics covered include Citizenship, Humanities, Art & Design, Science, Literacy & Numeracy as well as encouraging physical activity.

Examples

History : The sessions are tailored to specific learning journeys in school such as the Stone Age and Roman periods. We design each session to include an element of local history and understanding of the local environment using hands on practical activities to bring the subjects to life and have meaning to the area.

Water Matters: an outdoor experience bringing a better understanding of the importance of local water processes to KS2 children. Exploring the water cycle in nature with specific emphasis on the living world. Using a range of natural materials ,experiments and games processes the water cycle is explored and brought to life.
