Out of the classroom, into the trees

Tree Top Junior Southampton

This year, get outside and put those classroom theories into practice.

Class doesn’t have to take place inside to teach you something valuable, right? Here at Go Ape we’re all for getting your hands dirty, your clothes grubby and your cheeks a bit red. So, for all those hard-working teachers out there, here are just some of the benefits of an outdoor educational experience:

 

1. Healthy living

More than 1/3 of children are overweight by the time they are 10 years old. Encourage some physical activity and show the children just what they’re made of.

2. Moods

Exercise releases endorphins, so an energetic school outing will leave the children chirpier for more reasons than one. Fresh air and rosey cheeks never hurt anyone!

3. Brainpower

Exercise increases blood flow around the body and that includes the brain! Learning outside the classroom has even been shown to improve grades.

4. Confidence building

Turn “I can’t” into “I can.” There is nothing better than the sense of accomplishment after tackling a challenge head on. From climbing a rope ladder, to defeating an extremely wobbly crossing, show the children they can achieve whatever they put their minds to.

5. An unforgettable day!

After all that excitement, what you’ll be left with is an extremely memorable school trip. Why not test the formula for speed as you zoom down zip wires, design your own course, or study sustainability as you explore the forest grounds?

 

So if exercising outdoors can improve your learning, doing both at the same time must do wonders! If you’re a teacher thinking of arranging a school trip, why not combine a mental and physical challenge on one of our memorable Go Ape school trips. Find out more and book by calling us on 0845 643 1517.

Sandringham School Model Go Ape

Sandringham

We love receiving emails like this – and we love that Go Ape is the first thing that comes to mind during a school project!

A group of year 8 pupils at Sandringham School were tasked with developing some local wasteland as part of a project. They designed a very unique Tree Top Adventure that made the most of the wasteland and transformed it into somewhere that everyone can enjoy.

It’s for anyone who likes to live life adventurously – you don’t have to be a seasoned explorer to enjoy a Go Ape experience!

Schools Trips. An Unforgettable Learning Experience

“Where are my shoes? I can’t find my backpack!”

The nights are drawing in slowly, there is a crisp tingle in the autumn air and the kids are back to school. It’s time to snap back into the school routine – less of the tasty treats and more of the times tables. But lest we forget we need a good mix of fun and learning!

New experiences are flawless learning curves for kids. Allowing them to let their imagination run wild and learn through pushing the boundaries are all in a days trip to Go Ape!

We offer pupils the perfect place to get out of the classroom and up into the canopy! With a variety of national curriculum based educational resources for the classroom and the chance to encourage the little monkeys to be adventurous Go Ape is the perfect school trip.
