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

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

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

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

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

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!
