MAKE PRIMARY GEOGRAPHY FUN AND INSPIRING
“A high-quality geography education should inspire in pupils a curiosity and fascination about the world and its people that will remain with them for the rest of their lives”.
That’s the opening line of the National Curriculum for Geography and that’s exactly what Active Outdoor Discovery activity sessions and workshops do!
My name is Adrian Hall and I have been delivering primary school indoor workshops and outdoor activity sessions to KS1 and KS2 groups in primary schools all over East Anglia and beyond since 2010.
Sessions support the 2014 National Curriculum. Content and focus can be tailored to be suitable for any year group and all equipment is supplied.
TURN YOUR PUPILS INTO YOUNG EXPLORERS
As an Outdoor Activities Instructor (with an enhanced DBS check) I can introduce your children to the use of maps, compasses and navigation in fun, engaging outdoor sessions.
You don’t need to go to the expense and logistical trouble of organizing an off-site visit for your children to experience orienteering, I can deliver fantastic “Map Skills” sessions loaded with activities to get your pupils interpreting maps and relating them to the world around them. Sessions culminate with a mini-orienteering challenge on your school site.
N.B. Orienteering fulfils the KS2 National Curriculum PE requirement for an outdoor and adventurous activity.
And if you really want to build on the “Explorer” theme why not include a “Camping Skills” session – learn what you would need to pack in your rucksack (and maybe leave at home) to go off exploring. There are problem solving opportunities galore with camping equipment!
DISCOVER THE WORLD FROM YOUR CLASSROOM
As an Expedition Leader, I can captivate your pupils with tales of travel from the parched Namib Desert to the frozen Arctic sea ice, from the steaming jungles of Borneo to lofty Andean peaks, from the endless African savannah to the amazing Galapagos Islands. I can bring these distant and remarkable places to life in a way that only someone who has experienced their wonders can. Your children will be full of questions, give them the opportunity to put them to someone who has been there.
Have a look at the clothes and equipment you would take with you, climb inside an emergency shelter and imagine a blizzard howling outside!
