Learning outdoors promotes engagement and enjoyment of learning amongst children and young people. This has a positive effect on their personal and social development, their behaviour and general well-being. Children and young people persevere longer with activities outdoors and are more prepared to try new things.
As part of our continued commitment to outdoor learning, as well as delivering Duke of Edinburgh Award, outdoor adventurous activities, horse riding and Forest Schools initiatives we run a residential trip annually. The past year has seen us access the Urdd Camp Llangrannog, where our young people were able to participate in a range of activities such as, go-karts, archery, climbing, quad biking, skiing and tobogganing. While there the young people we encouraged to interact with instructors through the medium of Welsh. We visited again in 2017 and took twenty six pupils over two separate residential trips.
