During your child’s academic journey through the school, he or she will experience a variety of different trips. These build upon topics learnt in the classroom and are selected carefully so that they are educational, fun and ‘hands on’.
During the last academic year, Early Years children have made ‘big ears’ to go on a listening walk around the local area to identify the different sounds you can hear in the environment. They searched for dragons at Windsor Castle to extend their learning about Fairy Tales and the Queen was there!
Key Stage One went on a mathematical adventure to Kew Gardens to find numbers and patterns in nature. It was a fabulous day! They have visited the Natural History Museum, identified dinosaurs and finding famous fossils.
Year Three have visited The Science Museum to find out about digestion, partaking in a workshop and exploring ‘Launch Pad’. Pupils have been to The British Museum to find out more about an archaeologists job, handling and sorting artefacts.
Year Four have visited Hogsmill Water Works to find out more about what happens to our water. This supported their geography topic.
During the summer term, pupils in Key Stage Two participate in a resident trip. Year Three visit Mill on the Brue in Somerset, for a four night and three day residential where they participate in a variety of adventurous activities including going on a zip wire, canoeing, night walking, grass sledging to name but a few.
Year Four, Five and Six spend five days and four nights on residential, they have visited France, the Oxfordshire countryside camping and an activity centre in Kent.
