After the end of a very wet February, we’re hoping that Spring is now here. And that March brings some better weather!
It’s been a lovely, fresh day today. And the end of another awesome day at YBC Bridgend running outdoor learning bushcraft sessions.
Today we’ve been honing our basic bushcraft skills and working as a team. We’ve had the kelly kettle challenge, den building, and fire lighting with flint and steel. And we filled up the log store ready for next week’s sessions (we’re prepared!) Great work everyone, see you next week 🔥
If you’re looking to take learning outdoors, drop us a line to start planning your school’s sessions with us 👍
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…
