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!

Amazing how peaceful 18 children making elderflower cordial can be. They were utterly absorbed picking the flowers off the stalks. The mixture is now stored in my fridge and the children will be decanting and taking it home next week. ... See MoreSee Less

I've been spotted, and laughed at, foraging around the village! We are making elderflower cordial at our club this week. A peaceful hour in the Epperstone hedgerows eventually gave me all we need. ... See MoreSee Less

Today we were inspired by thoughts of the fairies and elves living in the wood; the kids made some great creations. It also evolved into bridge building where the children displayed some great engineering and teamwork skills (whilst having fun!) ... 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 😀.
