Children throughout school are given opportunities to take part in Educational visits. These trips back up their learning in different topics with memorable experiences.
We also have a planned programme of overnight and residential visits:
Our Year 2 children camp out overnight, in either Sharow or Skelton school field, for one night in June to give them a taster of a night away from home.
Our Year 3 and Year 4 children attend a 3 day residential at Marrick Priory. During the visit we encourage and develop self-respect, respect for others and for the natural environment we share. This is achieved through a range of activities that promote participation, teamwork, personal challenge, independence, friendship and personal responsibility.

Our Year 5 and Year 6 children attend a 3 day residential in London alternating with a 3 day residential to East Barnby.
East Barnby will create life-long memories for your child, build their confidence and improve their mental well-being. All of this whilst taking part in fun, challenging and exciting outdoor activities in the natural environment.
The visit will promote personal and social development, a positive growth mindset and the resilience necessary to face challenges and solve problems. The children will develop their ability to learn though improving their emotional intelligence, strength of character, creativity and communication skills. In addition to this will develop their environmental awareness, appreciation for the natural world and ability to keep themselves safe in it.

The London visit provides the opportunity for children to learn more about our capital city. We visit St Paul's cathedral, the London Eye, The Rainforest Cafe, The Natural History Museum and Tower of London. We also go to see a show. This year the children chose to see The Lion King. This is a fun packed and busy visit that enables the children to feel life in a city, experience a West End musical and learn more about another place. The ppt. below shows the itinerary.
