Enhance Your Curriculum

At OASES we are not just about having a wonderful time outdoors, we really care about learning.  The two are not, however, mutually exclusive.  Infact studies have shown (Every Experience Matters, 2008; Natural Connections, 2016) that pupils and teachers learn better, and have a nicer time doing so, when learning is taken outdoors!

Your curriculum can be broadened, and learning made memorable, by 'one off' school trips but, to have sustained impact, outdoor learning needs to occur regularly and often (Learning Outside the Classroom; how far should you go? Ofsted 2008).  To this end OASES offers whole school packages of support to implant outdoor learning within your school and embed it within your school's ethos: 

Active Learning
Beach Schools
Forest Schools
Fieldwork

Each package is uniquely tailored to an individual school's rerquirements but typically contains: whole school CPD; individual teacher curriculum planning support; shadowing opportunities for teachers to witness the benefits.
