Visits/Outings & Residential Trips
Visits and Outings
Educational visits by classes are fundamental to providing first hand experiences for our children. All classes link them carefully with topics being studied. Parents are often invited to accompany their children on these visits, if they so wish.
Similarly, we frequently invite visiting speakers and entertainers into school. These visits are always linked into work the children are studying.
We provide the opportunity for children to participate in a residential experience. For 2014- 2015 we have arranged the following:
Year 6 Kingswood, North Wales : 3 days
Year 6 Chateaux Broutel, France: 4 days
Year 2 Kingswood, North Wales : 3 days
These visits are extremely enjoyable experiences and provide the children with an opportunity to extend their classroom work.
Our aim in providing residential opportunities is to encourage in children an awareness that
“There is something more to life than meets the eye, something more than the material, something more than the obvious, something to wonder at, something to respond to.”
