Educational visits are a fundamental part of our curriculum. Not only do they bring learning to life, but they also enable the children to experience different environments, consolidate understanding and develop social skills. In Pre-Prep, we aim for one educational visit each half-term, usually linked to our topic work.
Children from Transition recently went on their second school trip and used their imagination visiting TotsTown; dressing up and acting out a variety of jobs and roles. Perhaps we have already seen a future doctor or hairdresser in action!
Year 1 delved into the past by visiting the Norwich Museum at Bridewell Hall. It was an opportunity to handle toys from long ago, as well as ask questions about the past. The children loved making a simple spinning toy, just like those children before them would have played with.
Creative Connie was on display in the Year 2 trip to The Sainsbury Centre. The children were enthralled by the artwork on display, showing both maturity and intellectual curiosity. Maybe this trip will be the inspiration for a life-long passion for art and design?
We have been very proud of the children on all these trips. Their behaviour and engagement have been fabulous. We are looking forward to the next outings!
