Climbing attraction suitable for schools to opens in Leeds

Date Posted: 07/03/2018

A year in the making, Clip ’n Climb Leeds will open on 26th May and will boast 32 individual climbs making it the biggest in the North.

The attraction, a trip to which can support many strands of the National Curriculum, expects to welcome many schools upon opening. 

For school groups, the climbing attraction aims to provide: a better understanding of the human body, risk assessment and safety; Physical Education, learning about movement and creativity; and activity and sport, offering pupils the chance to take part in an active session, different to those taught in school.

What else can a visit tie in with?

The climbing experience 'enables children to think both logically and creatively and can enhance learning across a broad spectrum of subjects'.

The Clip ‘n Climb aims to help school children develop their personal and social skills as well as their confidence.

English, Maths, Science and Physical Education can all be incorporated into a trip and will look at different perspectives of climbing, from the mathematical measurements, to the way in which bodies move.

It can also tie in with Art and Design by using the colours and shapes of the climbing wall to create abstract art and ideas.

For a Geography linked trip, pupils can investigate mountains and rock formations and the methods of climbing.
