Duration: Full Day

Staff: 2 staff members

Cost: £350 inc all ingredients
(Based on one class / approx 30 children)

Location: Delivered on site

Activities include:

  • Introduction to World War II, where and when it took place.
  • Rationing, why it was necessary and how it impacted on people’s lives.
  • The story of F.O. Les Hood and shelter building.
  • Creating fire by friction
  • Preparing, cooking and tasting dishes using rationing recipes and techniques.
  • Looking at the principles of survival.

The WW2 and Survival programme introduces children to how people lived and survived in this period of history. They will experience examples of some of the foods that were rationed and how they were prepared and cooked through a ‘hands-on’ demonstration and discover the importance of survival skills!

Studies:

The session uses the real life experiences of a local hero Flying Officer Les Hood, and shows how the fundamentals of survival were actually used to survive a life or death situation.

“…we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.” Winston S Churchill

What People Say

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.

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

Kay Murray, Pelton Community Primary

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!

Jeanne O’Keefe, Oxclose Nursery

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 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.
