The ‘Seasonal Changes’ programme provides opportunities for pupils to observe and talk about changes in the weather and the seasons. Children work scientifically by making charts about the weather and day length as the seasons change.

Learners are encouraged to be creative by studying changes in colour, changes to the landscape…..how does it change and feel at different times of the year?

Activities include:

  • Four separate visits to same location to observe changes across the four seasons
  • Working creatively – producing collages and works of art that show how the landscape looks and feels
  • Describing weather and how day length varies

Studies:

Sessions allow pupils to experience phenomena by looking closely at the natural world around them.

First hand experiences allow learners to observe changes, describe weather and use their senses to explore differences in their local environment throughout the year.

“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken!”

Looking forward to my Year 1 ‘Plants’ activities today at Simonside Primary! What do plants need to grow? What’s the difference between deciduous and evergreen trees? Can you identify any? 🍁🌳🌲🌱 #scouted_outdoor_learning #gallery #plants
For anyone who delivers Forest School or outdoor learning activities, these amazing wooden flash cards by @moray_lothian_woodworks are fantastic! “Pick a card, any card, can you find the tree?” 🌳🍁#treeidentification #forestschool #outdoorlearning #scouted_outdoor_learning #plants #gallery

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

I enjoyed the activities immensely because you were there to add knowledge, enthusiasm and a ‘different slant’ on our habitats topic. Your delivery at our school was fantastic and our aims to increase the children’s knowledge and enjoyment were met. The day was very well delivered, organised and managed. We were extremely impressed with how you were with the children and your knowledge of the topic. We shall be contacting you again to see if you have any other topics that you could deliver.

Andrea Farlow, Cockton Hill Junior School

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

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

We have been working with SC.OUT.ED for two years now. In that time we have had no complaints – Chris has never arrived late and he is always very prepared…I’ve never seen so many items of equipment carried by one person! The children love the sessions; they come running the minute he arrives and always want to help out. Chris has a lovely, nurturing manner with the children and a sunny personality. The whole school is always happy to see him; staff included; there is nothing Chris will not try to complete in a session and there are no children he is not willing to work with. During our sessions Chris works with our whole school from our littlest two year olds to our nurture group who  often have significant SEMH needs. Chris is a member of our school team; he’ll even help out over the dinner-time between his sessions – I am sure no other company would be as helpful.

On a learning note, we have noticed our children have become much more resilient since starting SC.OUT.ED – they do not mind being outside whatever the weather and we see more cooperation and teamwork taking place long after Chris has gone home. On playtimes and lunchtimes we see the children applying their skills by making dens on the field and sharing their resources fairly. We have also analysed our attendance and find that most classes have 100% attendance on the days that SC.OUT.ED are working with them; this has helped our attendance improve over the last two years.

I could not recommend SC.OUT.ED more highly; they are truly a professional company. Communication is always quick and all services are transparent. I can’t wait to work with them again soon.
