School Outdoor Learning
Inspiring and enabling schools to connect with the outdoors for teaching and learning – providing resources, teacher training and creative installations.
Where Education Meets Adventure! Whatever the size and scale of your grounds and ambitions, we work in partnership with your school to achieve three aims:
1. Reclaim areas of your grounds that are not used to their full potential.
2. Install facilities and resources for teaching, learning and play in these areas.
3. Equip staff with the skills, confidence and resources to use the new facilities to their full potential.
So whether you have 100 acres of woodland or half an acre of tarmac SOuL can work with your whole school community to help you connect teaching and learning with your outdoor environment.
Lesson Plans: Learning Outside the Classroom (LOC)
Our LOC Handbook is available to schools to support teachers. It contains over 100 age and subject specific lesson plans across nine subject areas from EYFS to KS2. They will enable all teachers at your school to deliver safe, engaging and challenging activities for their students that will promote first class curriculum learning and engagement whilst being outside the classroom.
SOuL offers a variety of workshops and learning solutions for teachers and support staff. All our workshops are fun to take part in, highly practical, engaging and offer a wide range of activity ideas and resources that teachers can use with their students.
Coming to a region near you this Summer term!
A series of adventure races for competing teams of prep and junior school students to challenge them physically, intellectually and creatively involving activities and challenges at a series of checkpoints and ‘stations’ that must be navigated to. Examples include: • Mountain bike trails • Swimming • Run/obstacle course • Navigation and journeying skills • Raft building • Problem solving and team initiative tasks • Wall/tree climbs • Sensory challenges • Fire building and cooking tasks • Creative task/sculpt using natural materials • Knowledge of the natural world and the outdoor environment • Cerebral puzzles and activities

Students will also be scored and assessed on their team working skills together with their ability to lead and manage themselves through a fun, challenging and complex journey in the outdoors. The 3/4 winning teams from each regional competition will then be invited to attend a national final event to find the top team from all competing schools. There will be 3 age groups as follows:
1. Year groups 3 and 4 (to come later – not in 2016)
2. Year groups 5 and 6
3. Year groups 7 and 8
Through careful use of remote supervision, participants have maximum ownership of the challenge and become immersed in the adventure. These events bring together a wonderful mix of team spirit and adventure in some inspiring places.
