Work with Teachers and Children: Learning Outside of the Classroom is the use of places beyond the classroom for teaching and learning. It is about getting children and young people out and about, providing them with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn.

Our courses focus on students developing their skills and attributes in the following areas

Problem Solving

 

  • Team development activities help the children understand how their behaviour affects others.
  • Participants learn how to improve their personal and team performance by developing their communication skills and altering their attitudes and behaviours
  • Experiental learning provides an active student centered experience that can be tailored for all abilities
  • The children will gain self-confidence and a greater understanding of their strengths and skills 
  • The activities provide a space to learn, how to assess and take reasonable risks and challange the childrens assumptions about their limitations, which helps prepare them for new challanges such as the transition to a secondary school
