Back to school

Back to school!

It was Back to School for me too today!

I’m excited to be working with YBC again this year, taking learning outdoors every Tuesday. Today was all about planning and I’m brimming with ideas. I’m looking forward to starting back with pupils in two week’s time!

I’ve also been taking bookings for teachers looking for a different way to kick start and introduce a new topic to inspire their pupils. And teachers looking for an alternative school trip to remember have already started planning it with us ๐Ÿ‘

We cater for groups of less than ten to around 60. So if you’re looking for an outdoor learning session or planning your next school trip, do drop us a line! Steph ๐Ÿ˜Š

Teachers – see how we can help you take learning outdoors this term!

The summer has flown by, and the kids will soon be back in school. We know teachers have already been busy planning for the 2018-2019 academic year. But if you’re still looking for ideas and inspiration to take learning outdoors, read on!

Survival topic schools

Pupils celebrate surviving to the end of term!

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.

My favourite fire lighting method

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!
