Outdoor learning for Misty Mountain topic with Coety Primary School

Today we welcomed pupils from Coety Primary School, to learn about survival skills for their Misty Mountain topic. We even ordered the mist! πŸ˜‰

60 excited Year 4 pupils joined us in our beautiful, private woodland in Bridgend.

Outdoor learning and tool use

Some people shy away from allowing young people, especially those considered to have additional learning needs or challenging behaviour, from using sharp tools.

During our longer term outdoor learning sessions, we build trust and respect, and pupils have the opportunity to use knives, saws, and today the shave horse to make feather sticks. It provides an opportunity for pupils to learn about and manage risk and develop important life skills.

We find these sessions hugely rewarding seeing pupils grow in confidence and develop their skills and we’ve had great feedback about them. If you’re interested in finding out more for your pupils, drop us a line today…

Outdoor learning adventures in mythical lands

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.
