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.
Pupils will use maps and will learn to use the eight points of a compass, four and six-figure grid references, symbols and keys. Fieldwork will help pupils to observe, measure, record and present the human and physical features in the local area using a range of methods.
Pupils will take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team, helping build self-esteem, confidence and resilience.
