Learning that takes place outside the classroom should be valuable and memorable.  The delights and enjoyment of ‘Water Wednesday’ continues and the learning the children experience is amazing.  We are very keen to support our curriculum with day trips and residential visits.

Last week, the juniors were away on residential trips.  The school was quieter and the infants enjoyed having the back playground and all the play equipment to themselves.  However, in conversation with a Year 1 child, she told me that she missed the company of her playground buddies and that she looked forward to them returning.

The skills the children acquire on residential trips are wide ranging and have immediate effect and impact.  The independence gained from being away from home, working as a team and supporting each other are important life skills.  It is never too early to begin to acquire them.

Upon their return, the staff gave glowing reports of how enjoyable the trips had been and how proud they were of the children.  This was reinforced by an email from the YHA in Wales that commended our children and said that the staff had enjoyed sharing the activities with them.
