Pupils work in teams to discuss what we need to survive and the importance of teamwork and cooperation. They will use teamwork to build shelters and light fires by friction! Later in the day backwoods cooking activities will introduce children to food preparation and how to cook on an open fire. Dishes cooked may be roasted, fryed, baked or boiled – a variety of savoury or sweet recipes cooked in the great outdoors!

Activities include:

  • Fire safety and lighting fires by friction
  • Building different types of shelter
  • Preparing a fire for cooking on
  • Practical ‘hands-on’ food preparation
  • Cooking on a fire and tasting!

Studies:

What do we need to survive?
Working in teams, children will build shelters, light fires and prepare a fire to cook on.
Food will be prepared, cooked and then tasted in the great outdoors!
A great day to use as a stimulus for writing.

“The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is about as ample at one season or another. It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness”
(Thoreau)

What People Say

Sam has organised a number of community learning events with me. He is very organised and plans great learning experiences for adults and children.  Children and their carers raved about the cooking on the fire and the fauna identification activities in their evaluations.  I would highly recommend a Sam Jackson led event at any school.

Helen Grainger, Esh Winning Primary

Sam is absolutely fantastic at what he does and we consider ourselves incredibly lucky to have him as part of our team! The children adore their time with him and his weekly Forest School sessions are so engaging, even the staff look forward to donning their waterproofs and wellies to join in (muddy puddles and all)! Over the past few years, we have used SC.OUT.ED to deliver sessions, both in and out of school, and the response from children, staff and parents has always been phenomenal…and the children can’t stop talking about their learning with a huge smile (what more could we ask for?!). If you are looking for highly-skilled practitioners to enhance your curriculum offer with exciting & challenging outdoor learning opportunities, look no further than SC.OUT.ED; we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them!

Lisa Pegman, Deputy Headteacher, Simonside Primary School

Over the three sessions, all the children learnt new skills and enjoyed their time outdoors! It gave me increased knowledge and the confidence to plan and to deliver similar activities myself. The original aim, to link to PE and specifically an outdoor and adventurous activity core task, was met – especially on teamworking and cooperation. All the sessions were well planned and organised and they were delivered and managed well. Every activity challenged the children and taught them new skills. It was good to see less confident children have the opportunity to shine too!

Denise Hannon, St Chad’s RCVA Primary

The session was booked to enhance the children’s imagination – it definitely delivered on this! The day was organised brilliantly and was enjojed by both children and adults….the children were asking when you were coming back for the rest of the week!

Amy Foster, Delves Lane Primary

Sam’s session was tailored and linked very well to our rainforests topic.  The session delivered exactly what we hoped it would – the children learnt about adaptations and were able to extend their knowledge in a creative way, at a perfect pace and with a range of activities.  The day was excellently delivered!
