We are incredibly passionate about maximising opportunities to take the children on trips and visits to enhance their learning. Being close to the city centre means that we are uniquely placed to take advantage of an incredibly wide variety of learning opportunities beyond our own school. Children also take advantage of a number of visits further afield. Visits vary from year to year depending on the topics being covered.
We believe that the broader range of experiences that the children have and places that the children visit, the more they increase in confidence and self-belief. Every visit that the children enjoy is utilised as an opportunity to further develop social skills, cultural understanding and language development, alongside the key academic aims of the visit. Class Teachers are always looking for new and exciting opportunities to enrich the curriculum and welcome volunteers to accompany the children in their adventures!
Here are some examples of the opportunities that our children have benefitted from:
- Greenacres Farm Park
- Underwater Street
- Pizza making at Made in Italy Restaurant
- Kingswood Activity Centre
- Mary Jones World
- World Museum
- Deva Roman Experience
- St Georges Day Parade
- Conway Activity Centre
We strive to provide opportunities for children to shine their lights on residential activites.
We provide an overnight activity experience for children in Year 2. This helps children to feel more confident about the move to the next stage of their education and moving into Key Stage 2.
Year 6 Residential Trip
Our Year 6 pupils enjoy their annual residential visit each autumn. The purpose of the visit is to help build their confidence and self-esteem as they prepare for the challenge that moving on to High Schools will bring.
Staff and pupils find themselves taking on new activities and feeling deservedly proud of their new found skills and accomplishments!
