All of the practical activities provided during the activities can be demonstrated by us, shared with a carer or hands on for the pupil, just let us know which way best suits each pupil.
You can choose which of the activities your group would like or we can be flexible on the day and aim to cover a variety of tasks dependent on weather conditions and your pupilís learning capacity.
We will divide your learning session into short activities with plenty of changes of location to help to maintain involvement.
