Just because you are not at Bowles does not mean that the fun has to stop. Sounds maps are a great activity can be done just about anywhere.
Many people have just found themselves at home with their kids and suddenly having to help with their education. Bowles Outdoor Education Centre has come up with 5 tips to help you. This is the first in a series of posts that will share ideas and games for you to do in local parks and gardens. Just because schools are shut it does not mean that fun outdoor education has to stop.
As a follow up to our rock climbing courses, we have created this post to remind people of some of the skills taught on the course.
Although our activities have a massive amount of inherent learning, it is important to remember that they are extremely good FUN. This is why they also make a wonderful end-of-term reward day for both primary schools and secondary schools.
Our In-School Team will arrive at your school in the morning and run a range of team building activities. This can be done on a sports field or even in a large indoor area. Your Bowles instructor will coordinate the whole event.

With all the new changes that have come from both the Department for Education as well as the examination bodies it is tricky to understand what is actually required for assessments in GCSE rock climbing, kayaking and canoeing.
Below is what the new assessments actually mean and gives some guidance on what a high level performance looks like. Believe it or not some elements of the assessment have actually got easier! I hope that by reading this you will gain a better understanding of what the different examination bodies require and which of these can be done as a part of an intensive course at Bowles.
