Education and Personal Development in the Outdoors
The outdoor environment provides an exciting and stimulating context in which pupils can develop their skills and personal attributes through a variety of different activities organised by Aquaplay Scotland. We offer great opportunities for young people to have fun whilst supporting and building on their learning within school. We can tailor courses to suit the needs of different groups of learners, from a single day’s activity to a course running over several weeks or even months.

Skills
Alongside skills associated with the particular activity or activities chosen, pupils are encouraged, through set tasks and challenges, to develop important life skills such as self-reflection/evaluation, problem solving, team building, decision making, leadership and communication. If required, we can focus on one specific skill, developing this in more depth. We can also incorporate risk assessment techniques, an introduction to water safety and rescue methods and/or scenarios for pupils to practise first aid skills.

Curriculum for Excellence
Aquaplay Scotland can provide opportunities for personal achievement and experiences beyond the classroom where pupils will meet challenge and success at their own individual level. Our outdoor learning activities can contribute towards young people becoming successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.

Health & Well Being Outcomes
Our activities and skills development naturally contributes to some of the Health and Wellbeing Experiences and Outcomes of Curriculum for Excellence. We have included some examples below:

I can expect my learning environment to support me to:

  • develop my self-awareness, self-worth  and respect for others
  • meet challenges, manage change and  build relationships
  • experience personal achievement and  build my resilience and confidence
  • understand and develop  my physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing and  social skills
  • understand how what I eat, how  active I am and how decisions I make about my behaviour and relationships  affect my physical and mental wellbeing
  • participate in a wide range of  activities which promote a healthy lifestyle
  • understand that adults in my school  community have a responsibility to look after me, listen to my concerns and  involve others where necessary
  • learn about where to find help and  resources to inform choices
  • assess and manage risk and  understand the impact of risk-taking behaviour
  • reflect on my strengths and skills  to help me make informed choices when planning my next steps
  • acknowledge diversity and understand  that it is everyone’s responsibility to challenge discrimination.

Physical wellbeing
I am learning to  assess and manage risk, to protect myself and others, and to reduce the potential for harm when possible.

I know and can demonstrate how to keep myself and others safe and how to respond in a range of emergency situations.

Cooperation and competition
While learning together, and in leadership situations, I can:

  • experience different roles and take  responsibility in organising a physical event
  • contribute to a supportive and  inclusive environment
  • demonstrate behaviour that  contributes to fair play.

Evaluating and appreciating
I can analyse and discuss elements of my own and others’ work, recognising strengths and identifying areas where improvements can be made.

Physical activity and sport
I am experiencing enjoyment and achievement on a daily basis by taking part in different kinds of energetic physical activities of my choosing, including sport and opportunities for outdoor learning, available at my place of learning and in the wider community.
