Adventure can play a vital role in a child’s learning and development. For some, adventure can be the secret to learning.
The classroom isn’t for everyone and creative, inspirational settings could be exactly the right environment for some, while others can use adventure to supplement and extend their learning. At Wide Horizons, we think that adventure, adventurers and their stories can all be used to add to the power of learning across the whole curriculum. Our sessions are constantly monitored and regularly updated to reflect changes in education and the needs of our visiting schools and education groups.
Our centres are all quality assured and hold relevant certificates from the Adventurous Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) or Learning Outside the Classroom (LOTC).
We work with groups from Early Years Foundation Stage all the way through to Higher Education, including special schools. Here is a few examples of what we could offer you;
Science: mini-beasts, pond/river dipping, habitats, rock pooling, salt marshes, micro-climates, forensics.
Geography: coasts, rivers, contrasting localities, geomorphology, rebranding.
Art: paper making, pottery, environmental art.
PE: orienteering, route finding.
History: Victorians, WWII, mine exploration.
D&T: shelter building, survival skills.
Adventure: kayaking, archery, ropes courses, mountain biking, abseiling and camping.
