Days can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

SC.OUT.ED use the Forest School approach to learning in your own setting. Tailored to different age groups and topics, sessions are essentially child-led and give pupils the opportunity to learn key skills and concepts in a practical and meaningful way.

Approach to learning:

  • Creative activities such as outdoor art & patterns in nature
  • Curriculum specific topics – plants, seasonal changes
  • Developing survival skills – shelter building and cooking on a fire
  • Using our senses to explore the environment
  • Encouraging teamwork & cooperation

Opportunities:

  • Increase self-esteem & self-confidence
  • Improve listening and speaking skills
  • Contribute to the development of language
  • Improve children’s ability to work cooperatively
  • Improve physical and motor skills

Forest School is also a very effective stimulus for learning back in the classroom

“Experiences in the out-of-doors tend to be rich in opportunities for nurturing growth in all the developmental domains”

What People Say

During a den building activity it was great to see how quieter children showed their capacity for leadership and imagination.  The activities Sam delivered were engaging, challenging and required teamwork plus led to some good writing afterwards.

Nicola Welsh, Middlestone Moor Primary

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!

Gemma Preece, St Oswald’s

We wanted a high interest, active day with lots for the children to get stuck into and we got that from Mark. Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design with aspects of Communication and Language were successfully delivered. The delivery and management of the day was very good. Communication beforehand was quick and thorough. We really enjoyed the day, thank you!

Ashleigh Walker, Chopwell 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

Sam has worked with our children to teach them about saving and conserving energy. He explained a complicated concept in an entertaining and lively way that was accessible to all our children. He was friendly and approachable, encouraging easy communication with staff and children.
The children thoroughly enjoyed his lessons and continued to talk about what they had learnt, long after Sam had left. Sam has also been invaluable in promoting outdoor learning, training staff and has run inspirational forest schools sessions with our children. I would thoroughly recommend him to others!
