We are committed to developing a rich and stimulating creative curriculum with many opportunities for trips and outdoor days. We run residential trips for children in Years 4, 5 and 6 to help them to develop personal skills such as independence and taking responsibility. This continues to be a growth and development area, taking the opportunity to use the changes in the national curriculum to develop new topics with enhanced links across subjects.
Avon Tyrrell July 2019
Y6 had a great time recently at Avon Tyrrell and Jemimah reports:
“All of Y6 really enjoyed Avon Tyrrell and learnt some great skills like communication and teamwork which we will use next year. I really enjoyed the raft building because it was fun doing all the different challenges on the raft and trying not to fall in! The food was amazing and we got a range of choices at meal times. Many people conquered personal challenges like heights and abseiling, including Mrs Dennis. Thank you to all the staff who took us on this trip, and enjoyed it with us.”
Last summer (2018) KS1 (Y1 and Y2) went to visit Windsor Castle as part of their work on castles and megastructures.
Ufton Court January 2019
On the 28th January 2019 year 5 went to Ufton court for 3 days 2 nights. We all had an amazing time and tried new things like Tudor dancing and willow weaving.
A few people commented on their experience –
Abigail – “it was an amazing experience; I would like to go back again”
Tabitha – “it was Brilliant, even though I didn’t go for the whole time due to breaking my broken collar bone the week before!”
Rufus – “it was really fun because of the activities. I enjoyed being a high constable the most!
Lucas – “I loved spending time outside”
Emily – “the best bit was the raid we did on the last day because I like being lazy perkins”
Olivia – “I enjoyed the banquet because I liked the Tudor dancing as it was so much fun”
