Learning Outcomes

Physical education

Outdoor adventure activities help to build fitness and promote physical wellbeing. They also help with concentration, improve teamwork and communication skills. Many activities allow for personal development too, helping children and young people realise their potential and building confidence. Getting active in the outdoors helps improve motivation and self-esteem.

Communication & Listening skills

Being able to hear something, process it and formulate a favourable response in a short space of time. We’ve developed a range of activities where groups have to learn to communicate and listen to one another to ensure tasks can be completed successfully.

Dexterity/Control and balance

We have lots of open spaces and self-led activities that are great for developing dexterity, control and balance. We have poles to walk and balance on, sports pitches and fields to run around on and a range of instructed activities that are good for balance and hand eye co-ordination.

Concentration

Managing behaviour through outdoor activities. Getting active outdoors, running around and trying new activities not only helps let off steam, it can also aid concentration when back in the classroom or workplace.

New skills

Whatever the skill, be it learning how to kayak, lighting a fire using friction or skills on the bike track, learning something new can boost confidence in a young person. This shows them that learning can be fun and equips them with the drive and motivation to want to learn more.
