Visits & Visitors
In the curriculum we recognise that children’s learning is enhanced by different experiences. We offer children a wide range of educational visits which are used to motivate and engage learning which improves retention. For example, Year 1 visit the seaside which supports learning in English and foundation subjects, Year 4 go to Eureka to support learning in science and take a residential trip to Whitby to support learning in History and Geography.
Regular visitors in school give the children another perspective on values, attitudes, learning and understanding. These include charities, people from different professions (eg, the Fire Service, SpecSavers and local Police); subject enhancement visitors (Viking Day in Year 5) and the community (eg, local vicar and members of the Royal Legion).
