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!
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 😀.
Thanks so much Jess. Oscar has loved it every time and is looking forward to continuing next term. x
