Homes & Habitats, Foundation – Key Stage 2
Learners go wild exploring our meadows, woodlands and pond habitats, using their detective skills to:
- discover the different habitats
- gain first-hand experience of where animals can live and how they have adapted to their environment
- Introduce food chains, camouflage and warning colours used for survival
An exciting mix of discovery with a woodland safari, minibeast hunt, shelter-building, pond dipping, and designing a new creature from clay and natural materials to take back to school and continue learning.
Woodland schools, Foundation – Key Stage 3
Woodland School is an inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through, hands-on learning experiences in woodland or in a natural environment with flora and fauna.
Through reflective practice, the goal of the woodland school session is to provide a wide range of opportunities that will enable each learner to flourish, grow and develop into healthy, confident individuals, promoting social and emotional wellbeing with a balanced approach to holistic development.
River skills, Key Stage 2 - Key Stage 4
Our engaging River Skills programme is an interactive programme that helps engage learners with practical science and geography, through classroom sessions and an extended trip to a nearby river.
River Skills will encourage students to think about Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) and other issues regarding scientific and geographical investigations, water safety, wildlife sampling and pollution. Learning will be directly linked to developing key skills, including literacy and communication.
- The water cycle, weather, alternative technology and river systems and management
- Water safety and writing risk assessments
- Wildlife capture, classification, identification and adaptations
- Investigating river ecosystems: measuring and recording variables of a river environment
