After School Clubs – Nottingham

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…

  • 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!

We had a few Christmas tunes playing as we made traditional, natural Christmas garlands today..... It all felt very festive. ... See MoreSee Less

We were so busy today I forgot to take photos 😳. We went to the Millennium Garden to collect autumn leaves then inside to use a lot of glue to make beautiful lanterns which will be drying at my house until we reveal their beauty next week. Here are two pictures of how they look now and what we hope we've produced...... ... See MoreSee Less

We made the most of the autumn colours and fading light today, making some beautiful leaf crowns and playing around the wood... ... See MoreSee Less

How much fun?! ... See MoreSee Less

A tense start as damp sticks left Jess relying (genuinely) on Megan, Frank, Eve and others for support and tips getting the fire started!! Soon we popping though and we were all thrilled with how our popcorn tasted. The children got to practise with the flint and steel fire striker and have a good romp and play around the woods too. A great session all round. ... See MoreSee Less

It was so good to be back in nature today, the autumn colours in the Millennium Wood were beautiful. We played team stick games: it was a close call but Frank's team won! The piles of sticks collected have been stored in the dry ready for cooking popcorn on a bonfire next week (weather permitting). ... See MoreSee Less

We ended our term with an autumn berry hunt, a few extra chocolate coins to find and of course we couldn't resist the puddle. How has it not rained on us once all term?! Well done to all the kids for their levels of engagement, happy holidays! ... See MoreSee Less

Just because it's fun! ... See MoreSee Less

We know it's autumn when it's all gone conkers! The children made some wonderful creatures using tools including a drill. There was time to play too. A few creatures were left behind so are sleeping in the shed until next week. I was asked today if I live in the shed....... I don't. ... See MoreSee Less

Sebs porcupine has lost an eye so now it’s an alien porcupine! X

Today the children helped prepare and build the fires, tried using the fire-striker, cut their own willow stick and ate plenty of marshmallows! The puddle is back after days of rain, so for the last ten minutes they became bog-monsters! ... See MoreSee Less

This looks brilliant xx

It's official, making your own apple juice is better than buying it in the shops! Rather more hard work though..... The children were great. ... See MoreSee Less

I'm so excited to have collected our apple press ready for next week's activity. Club kids, please gather some apples to bring to the session if you can. We will be completing the whole process from tree to glass. Any other Lowdham folk, feel free to drop your windfalls off at my house if you're passing. Thanks. ... See MoreSee Less

Four teams engineered like crazy today to transport 4 pints of water each as far as they could. Two teams hardly spilt a drop - amazing! Huge thanks to all the helpers who were fantastic as always (a few of them may have got a little competative too)! ... See MoreSee Less

The boys have thoroughly enjoyed their time at (the great out-tours) and certainly would like to continue next term. Thank you so much for allowing them to enjoy the outdoors and experience the excitement and adventure of being part of a team in the wilds of the Millennium Garden 😀.
