If you can’t come to us maybe we can come to you, with our outreach packages our expert staff will come to your school. Working in your school grounds or local area your tutor will ensure that your pupils get a hands-on learning experience in a Covid-secure way.
Activities will be curriculum linked but will also encourage child-led discovery and exploration to foster enjoyment and curiosity about the natural world, as well as support holistic child development e.g. listening skills, independence, fine and gross motor skills, physical literacy.
The day will allow children to explore their school grounds, observe changes across the four seasons and identify some deciduous trees They will have the chance to work scientifically, using observations and ideas to suggest answers to questions and by gathering and recording data to help in answering questions. Pupils will benefit from learning outside the classroom, build confidence and resilience and use their curiosity to engage with the natural world.
