School’s out for summer! In this blog we share our ideas of things to do with the kids this summer in South Wales. And we’ve focused on outdoor activities, naturally.
Today I welcomed pupils from Tai Education Centre in RCT to our Bridgend Bushcraft Basecamp.
The pupils had focused on a survival topic this term in school. So to finish the topic and celebrate the end of term, pupils got to put in to practice the survival skills they’d learnt in the classroom.
We’re almost at the end of the school year and the start of the summer holidays. And we know teachers have already started planning for the next school year. Keep reading to find out more about our outdoor School Adventures in South Wales.
Whilst running children’s bushcraft birthday parties, kids often ask me funny questions. From “do you live here?” to “do you know Bear Grylls?”. In this blog post, I’ve shared my top 10 funny questions I’ve been asked.
One of the myths about outdoor learning is that you need a qualification to do it. In this blog post, I want to help bust that myth. And inspire you to take learning outdoors every day!
I think most people know from coming to parties and events that I love fire. I often sit and watch fire. It has got to be the most mesmerising thing, and possibly more so when it is a fire that you have lit.
The satisfaction that comes from lighting a fire, for me is second to none. I love it when I work with groups – kids and adults – and you take them through the process of building a fire and then letting them light it with whichever means they have chosen. The look on their faces when they know that it has taken and they have done it is amazing!
Parents often ask us what snacks are provided at our children’s birthday parties. So we’ve put this post together to help answer your queries.
This week we welcomed Year 3 pupils from Maes Yr Haul Primary School in Bridgend, who came to us for a unique school adventure.
In December, I received a message from a teacher from Maes-yr-Haul Primary School. They wanted to run some outdoor learning sessions based on a “mythical lands” theme. Super excited, I quickly called her back to discuss ideas.
