Development Through Climbing
If you are looking for a weekly activity for your pupils, perhaps as an alternative PE lesson, Boulders’ Development Through Climbing course is an ideal! The course is aimed at groups from KS2 through to KS4 where the pupils will progress through a series of levels. All our levels are designed to be challenging, enjoyable and interesting for all learners regardless of ability or circumstance. The levels have been set up to promote problem solving, communication and the development of thinking. On completion of each level pupils should have learnt new lifelong skills that prepare them for the responsibilities of adult life.
The content of the sessions links in with the PE curriculum, including adventurous activities, health, fitness and well-being activities, creative activities and competitive activities. Giving you a great excuse to get away from the sports hall and into a fantastic and exciting facility.
