Boro Active Explorers

Boro Active Explorers was a project led by ourselves at Middlesbrough Environment City, and funded by the fantastic team at You’ve Got This, delivering Forest School and outdoor learning activities to schools and community groups across Middlesbrough (with a focus on the TS3 ward)

It was essentially a service available for schools to help teachers, pupils and parents get in touch with nature. These sessions always received positive feedback for the experience provided for everyone. Our hands on training and organised sessions helped children and teachers glean a number of skills, as well as experience a number of activities, in a friendly environment.

From fire-lighting to safely utilising tools, teachers, pupils and their parents alike benefitted from these practical sessions. It helped them to develop social skills, and provided a safe environment in which to meet new friends, united in common interest in the environment. All were encouraged to explore their environment and try new things, helping to boost their confidence. The experience outdoors will also provide an avenue to boost their physical and mental health by getting in touch with the natural wonders that surround them.

The programme included a learning framework to track progress, as well as explorer badges and certificates to celebrate accomplishments.
