Primary Visits EYFS and Key Stage 1

Days for schools

We offer a fun range of outdoor learning activities to engage Early Years and Key Stage 1 with the environment.

Visits are delivered at our learning centres by our experienced leaders. The habitats and landscape provide a stimulating back drop to learning, play and adventures, whilst also offering safe access and facilities needed for younger pupils.

Our programmes are designed to teach areas of the curriculum, providing practical skills and the opportunity for exploration, creativity and enjoyment through a child centred approach. Each programme details its learning objectives together with National Curriculum links.

What Ofsted says about outdoor learning:

The first-hand experiences of learning outside the classroom can help to make subjects more vivid and interesting for pupils and enhance their understanding.”  2008 Ofsted report, “Learning outside the classroom – how far should you go?”

We strive to make our visits accessible to all. Days can be tailored to your group’s needs.  While many of our sites are accessible to people with limited mobility, it is recommended to discuss your particular needs with us before booking.

We hold the Learning Outside the Classroom quality badge, certificate number R2QB103464
