Guided Learning: Outdoor Education
Embracing change as an opportunity, building a strong sense of self-worth and the confidence to overcome, and learn from, adversity.
Now more than ever, resilience is key to developing self-reliance and resourcefulness. The Outdoor Education Department will support pupils in building their resilience by running an exciting adventure training programme during the Summer term, which will explore key aspects of bushcraft, such as shelter building and camouflage and concealment, amongst other inventive activities. This will be delivered weekly to the D year group, providing an important opportunity to come together and collaborate.
In addition, the climbing and bouldering ECA will develop technical knowledge, offer specific workouts and discuss trip planning, equipment advice and knowledge.
Furthermore, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, both at Bronze and Gold level will continue to flourish. Preparation for the expeditions will include safe cooking, rucksack packing, basic map reading and first aid.
The Ten Tors team will be offered an exciting challenge to reflect on the hardships faced on Dartmoor.
