What People Say

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

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’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!

Rachel Harmer, Butterknowle Primary

This was the most enjoyable training course I’ve been on in some time! The course leaders were really helpful and knowledgeable. I feel inspired to motivate the children and to start some growing activities! Thank you so much.

Louise Gardner, St Mary’s RCVA Primary

A great hands-on training day – loads of new ideas and I now feel more confident to use the outdoors with children.
