Lets walk the amazon April Home Ed.jpg

Hands-on Educational club

These clubs are created to support learning about rainforests, conservation and exotic animals of the jungle age 6 +.

 

The Jungle Hut clubs provides home educated children an insightful and fun introduction and understanding of the importance of the exotic animals and their habitats. 

 

The next session are now open for bookings.

The Jungle Hut is buzzing with excitement as it prepares to kick off its new Home Education term on Wednesday, 10th April. Aptly named

"Let's Walk The Amazon,"

inspired by Ed Stafford’s 2 and a half year perilous journey. This term promises an immersive journey through the heart of the dense rainforest. Students are set to explore the challenges, marvel at the unique wildlife, and experience life with a tribe, offering an unparalleled educational adventure. We’ll build dens, try foods eaten by indigenous tribes, and end our term with each child receiving a certificate to commemorate us purchasing a piece of the rainforest forever!

Learning Objectives:

  • Geography and Navigation Skills:

    • Students will actively participate in planning a virtual route for their journey through the Amazon rainforest.

    • They will learn to read maps, use compasses, and navigate the challenging terrain, enhancing their geography and navigation skills.

  • Ecology and Biodiversity:

    • Witnessing the diverse ecosystems within the Amazon, students will gain insights into the delicate balance of flora and fauna.

    • Through interactive sessions, they will learn about the importance of preserving biodiversity and the role of the rainforest in global ecological systems.

  • Cultural Understanding:

    • Living like a tribe will provide students with a unique opportunity to understand and appreciate indigenous cultures.

    • They will participate in tribal activities, learn about traditional practices, and gain a deeper respect for the rich cultural heritage of Amazonian communities.

    • Experts will guide students in identifying various species of flora and fauna, emphasising the importance of conservation efforts.

    • Learning about the Amazon's unique wildlife, students will understand the interconnectedness of species and the significance of preserving their habitats.

    • As part of the immersive experience, students will acquire basic survival skills necessary for life in the rainforest.

    • They will learn to build shelters, source food and water sustainably, and adapt to the challenges posed by the Amazon environment.

  • Environmental Awareness:

    • The term aims to install a sense of environmental responsibility in students.

    • Through hands-on activities and discussions, they will explore the impact of deforestation, climate change, and human activities on the Amazon rainforest.

    • The journey through the dense rainforest will encourage teamwork and collaboration among students.

    • Engaging in group tasks and challenges, they will develop leadership skills and learn the importance of effective communication in a team setting.
