Hive school missions are immersive outdoor adventures and projects that empower pupils to explore, create, problem-solve and collaborate in nature.
Over the past few years, we’ve been working with a small group of regular schools and developed a series of Hive missions specifically tailored to the needs of primary schools. We took all the best bits from our holiday camp missions and created exciting workshops that bring together nature and the outdoors, the needs of the Curriculum and our own learning approach.
Our missions welcome pupils from Reception through to Year 6. They last one or two days (or more if you decide to go for a bespoke mission) and can be delivered in your own setting or at our Hive site.
WHAT IS A HIVE MISSION?
Missions for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2pupils prioritise imagination and learning through make-believe. They are rooted in story-telling, with children given agency to control the narrative. They feature a broad range of nature skills and are designed to nurture team-working skills.
Missions for Years 3 and 4 pupils combine critical thinking with creativity and lots of learning through doing.They are project-based and introduce more complex nature skills in bushcraft, wild cooking, outdoor building, arts and Earth sciences. The focus is on problem-solving and collaborating to achieve! Learning through trial and error is also a key part of all missions.
Missions for Years 5 and 6 pupils are designed to nurture initiative, collaborative learning and decision-making by engaging them in authentic projects. They are encouraged to form their own perspectives and given the freedom to pursue their ideas. Working on real scenarios and in the outdoors allows pupils to stretch their problem-solving skills and practice self-management.
