Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Foundation/Key Stage 1

Foundation and Key Stage 1 geography short courses have clearly stated outcomes that enable teachers to quickly and easily book a fieldtrip, safe in the knowledge that it will be directly related to work taught in the classroom and will contribute to achieving the curriculum.

As well as exploring a different aspect of learning about the environment, each course will have a strong emphasis on developing personal confidence and team-building skills and will include activities to encourage cultural appreciation, artistic development and physical well being.
