Never Eat Slimy Worms in the Great Outdoors

Outdoor Education in schools can involve physical, intellectual and social development.

Pupils are encouraged to extend themselves and to build values about; relationships and respect towards other children, they can become more aware of the environment around us, the responsibility they undertake and the part they play within a group of children working towards achieving a common goal.

Fun and enjoyment must be at the epi-centre of any outdoor learning unit of work. Due to their shared experiences and the nature of activities involved such as; orienteering, climbing and canoeing, pupils develop key life skills they can utilise in the future.

Another huge part of outdoor education is the possibilities for cross curricular learning from core subjects; English, Maths, Geography, History and Science, giving them insight into where they may use this knowledge and understanding in the wider community.

The new Outdoor Adventure curriculum we have been learning so far in Year 1 and 2 has given the children a fantastic platform not only to develop their skills  but it has also allowed them to be imaginative and creative in a school setting. In BSB Sanlitun this area of work has allowed us to develop a variety of our BE AMBITOUS skills; resilience, being collaborative, problem solving and risk taking to name but a few.
