Educational Visits & Trips

As part of our Curriculum, we expect every class to experience a school trip at least once during a school year, to enhance the learning done through a topic that they are studying.  This could be through the Lunar Curriculum or through a discrete subject such as Science or RE.  Educational Visits and trips are aimed at developing pupils’ understanding of the learning from the classroom, giving them hands on experiences, creating excitement around a topic or allowing them to try out skills that they have learned in a different context.

We also aim to build our curriculum through visitors to school, who can add another layer to the learning in each topic through sharing first hand experiences, bringing in resources and items to share with the pupils or by sharing specialist knowledge.  

In addition to curriculum trips and visits, we offer the opportunity for pupils to experience a range of Cultural experiences during their time in school eg visiting museums, attending pantomimes, having the opportunity to attend the theatre.  

We are also building in a number of annual events for specific year groups, such as the Y4 camping experience and the Y6 residential.  

Many of these opportunities and experiences will be linked to the ’50 things to do before you leave our school’ challenge that all pupils start when they enter our school and aim to complete by the time that they leave.  Click here to view our ’50 things to do’ challenge!
