Outdoor Education: Year 4

Young Explorers

In Year 4 the focus changes to allow the pupils to experience outdoor activities at a more adventurous level. Each Year 4 class will spend one afternoon a week every three weeks sampling a variety of outdoor activities ranging from Bushcraft and Climbing to Sailing and First Aid. Each child will spend 10 sessions over the academic year taking part in the Young Explorers programme.

The programme is designed to give the children opportunity to experience an abundance of outdoor activities in a safe environment and strengthen their understanding and respect for the outdoors. Please click here to see the exciting session we have planned.
