After School Clubs – Arun

The great out-tours bring the wonders of the countryside to the doorstep of primary school children. Via an exciting & curriculum supporting ‘four seasons’ outdoor learning programme, we deliver after school clubs & in-school workshops.

We pride ourselves in creating unforgettable practical experiences of nature in action using the school grounds/surrounds as the teaching ‘stage’. We work closely with the school staff to satisfy key curriculum learning objectives in the subject areas of: science, geography, art & design, music & design & technology. If your school has a Great Out-tours club running, here is a taster of what your children will take part in…

  • Living animal dynamics, including handling/bottle feeding lambs & chicks in spring.
  • Wild produce culinary activities including making Elderflower cordial, Crab Apple jelly, jams & chutneys & crushing/pressing fruits in summer for the freshest juice.
  • Carrying out a variety of countryside surveying methods on nature (with the aid of long duration cameras to bring alive the wildlife whilst school sleeps)!
  • Rural crafts making animal/plant structures/sculptures as well as bird, bat & insect nest boxes, homes & hotels!
  • Exciting individual & team-work based activities to develop self esteem, confidence, independence & practical skills. … plus many other illuminating & fun activities!

23.04.19 - DID YOU HAVE A HAPPY BL..EASTER????!!!!

Farmer John has been really busy this Easter hols bringing new life to Woodside Environmental Education Centre; four of the cutest lambs; Bruno (from Dorset), Nell (from Sussex with a dose of Dutch), Marble (from East Anglia with a dose of South Down Sussex) & ???? (a female lamb from the South Downs with a dose of French/Dutch)!!! The last lovely lamb has not been named and we need your help to name her.

Replies would be very welcome please to really give our lamb a spring in her step!!!

This is possibly our most diverse European mix of lambs since we started bringing lambs to school across our Wealden and West Sussex club network (over 7 years ago).

They each have extremely interesting stories & all have such lovely calm personalities THAT YOUR CHILDREN AT CLUBS WILL GET TO MEET, FEED AND LEARN ABOUT!

Some of you may know but very sadly the educational farm in our region -'Seven Sisters Sheep Centre', that used to run lamb visits for all ages, closed last year. We are told that we are unique in our provision of lamb based curriculum supporting school visits.

We break down all the H&S barriers to ensure children at schools get to marvel, feed and pet these quintessential icons of Spring. THIS IS A TRULY UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE FOR CHILDREN!

Our school club registers are now live so if you have not done so already, please re-enrol/enrol your child(ren) by clicking on thegreatout-tours.com/find-a-club/

Our four newest animal friends and The Great Out-tours team cannot wait to see you all in this SPRING HIGHLIGHT TERM 5.

It typifies why we at The Great Out-tours do what we do, namely to 'inspire children in the countryside'!

So great to be back in the schools after the Christmas break. The kids had a fabulous time making bird feeders this afternoon. We will be learning a lot about our local birds over the next couple of weeks. We will be gathering information and feeding it back to the RSPB as part of the annual Bird Watch. Keep an eye out for the photos. Best wishes ... See MoreSee Less
