Educational Trips and Visits

Throughout the year, we organise trips to compliment the new curriculum, which challenge the children’s knowledge and understanding. Staff look closely at the curriculum, to see where the best opportunities are for learning away from the school site, utilising the local area and beyond.

Prior to trips taking place, all children use map work skills to see exactly where they are going and look at different routes to and from the location. They also look at routes around the museums and parks they visit, so that they have the biggest say in what happens during the trip.

Pupils also plan fieldwork activities that they will carry out during the trip, for example, Year 3 have asked members of the public how they travelled to Calderstones Park and how far they travelled to get there. This data will then be used back in class as follow-up work to the trip, engaging them further with the trip and the cross-curricular links.

We also organise two residential trips for Year 3 and 6 each year. See our residential page for more details.
