Over the quiet winter months, I was able to secure a few weeks work with Arthog Outreach in Telford providing outdoor activities for various schools in the area. I was broken in gently on the first week and provided the following activities on three separate days.
Hill walking on the Wrekin;
Team Challenges for a Gifted and Talented Group; and
- Canoeing at Simpsons Pool.
I’m not sure who learnt more this week the children in my care or me as I adapted my teaching style and sessions to cater for younger age group. However, I have to stay that there natural curiosity in the outdoor environment always amazes me and I’m not sure where this goes as the teenage years approach!!
Next week I’ll be climbing outdoors at Grinshill and then on the indoor climbing wall at the centre, canoeing and running a team challenge.
