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.

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

Imaginative, innovative, inspiring and ingenious, Sam is the ultimate approachable, flexible and reliable professional who brings learning to life in the outdoors for all who have the privilege to spend time in his company. His enthusiastic approach engages children and professionals alike and this is underpinned by his unparalleled subject knowledge, a creative mind and a dedication to make the learning experience an ultimate one. Sam is also always open to new ideas and to work closely with teachers to ensure that the learning is tailored specifically to the context. Ox Close has had the privilege of working with Sam and the equally brilliant wider SC.OUT.ED team for several years now and his sessions are a weekly highlight for our pupils.

At Ox Close, SC.OUT.ED provide a diverse and progressive outdoor offer, ranging from bushcraft to pond dipping, from arts using natural matrerials to archery, holiday provision and the ever popular fire activities! Sam has helped to develop our amazing outdoor area and he has provided enriching and enlightening professional development for a host of staff from Ox Close and beyond. Sam has a fantastic team which is very much in his own image – friendly, wise and approachable and both he and his colleagues are very much an integral part of the team at Ox Close and many other schools.

What SC.OUT.ED offer was perhaps best summarised by one pupil earlier this year:

“The best, the top of the tops, I mean right off the scale is Outdoor Learning with Sam Jackson!”

It is with great pleasure that I offer my full endorsement of Sam and his exceptional organisation.

Daniel Harrison Executive Headteacher, Ox Close Primary

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and developed their knowledge about the Stone Age. The day was fantastic. It was delivered very well, the children were engaged all day and they learnt a lot about the topic, as well as developing skills such as team building and problem solving.

Nicola Cooke, St. Anne’s CE 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

Sam’s approach to our science topic, ‘dissolving’, promoted autonomy and self discovery. The children learnt some theory, put the theory into practise and then explained what had happened – the children loved it! I have learnt that the children need to have time for self discovery in order to better understand science. Sam was extremely organised and it made for a stress free activity day. I’d seriously recommend Sam to other schools, he’s great!
