Events & Visits

We endeavour to widen the experience of the children we teach.  Whenever possible, subject to the availability of staff expertise, we try to provide the opportunity to acquire new skills and interests.

Special events are often held within school. The theme of the events vary – sometimes it can be to support a particular project or learning priority or to mark a special occasion or national celebration.

Visits from and visitors to school are frequently arranged for the children, in the course of class work. These vary from class to class and from year to year.

Year 6 children are given opportunities to go on a residential visit and also to take part in a variety of activities and experiences.  This gives the children firsthand experience of other people and places.  We spend a few days away at the Diocesan Retreat Centre at Myddelton Grange and also have a day of adventurous activities.

Scooter and Skateboard Day

Back in February, Classes 1 and 2 enjoyed a visit from a Scooter teacher and Classes 3, 4 and 5 got to try out the skateboards. We really enjoyed ourselves and most of us got to try something new and develop our skills. 

Class 2 trip to the Hindu Mandir and National Media Museum

Class 2 had a great time. Their behaviour was excellent and they learned a lot about a different religion. The museum was great fun as we witnessed an exploding balloon full of different gases.
