    School visits to the National Park

    Let the National Park Authority’s Discovery Team take your learners on an amazing outdoor journey, and relieve the worries of your school trip. This popular service offers a variety of trips to suit all learners, whatever their age or ability.

    Sessions can be based in school, outside in the National Park or at one of the National Park Authority’s centres, and are led by our team of professional, well-trained leaders, who are committed to making learning interesting, safe and fun.

    Popular sessions include Habitat Studies and The River; From Source to Sea.

    Habitat Studies explore the life and relationships in number of habitats; beach and rockpools, woodland, stream and pond, meadow and hedgerow, sand dune and upland.

    The River; From Source to Sea explores how a river changes as it descends from the hills of the Preselis to the coast. The emphasis in these sessions is on practical, hands-on work. Learners are encouraged to explore, question and reason, before extending what they have learned back in the classroom.

    Mucky Maths and Words in Wellies are designed to take the teaching of literacy and numeracy outside and are based on the literacy and numeracy requirements from the Welsh Government. Sessions are tailored to meet the requirements of different learners and abilities.

    All sessions enable learners to explore different aspects of the National Curriculum in Wales, including geography, science, history, curriculum Cymraeg, and encourage learners to think about themselves as global citizens, with an active role in sustaining the environment for the future.

    Activities support three topics of the Pembrokeshire Sustainable Schools Award Scheme and the ECO Schools Award:Biodiversity, Litter and Waste, and Community Citizenship. The National Park Authority is also proud to be one of the partner organisations in the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Schools project.
