Curriculum linked visits
Visits are often arranged to support a topic that is being learned about in class. These visits may take place at the start of the topic to 'hook' the children's interest or further into the topic, to consolidate their learning.

They stayed in a local hotel and took part in fossil hunting, rock pooling and orienteering activities in Robin Hood's Bay with the National Trust; visited the Sea-Life Centre and learnt about features of coastlines such as bays, headlands and coastal erosion.

This will include a trip to Whitby and the Pannett Park Museum; rock pooling, fossil hunting and orienteering with the National Trust in the village; a visit to the Sea-Life centre and a Smugglers tour of Robin Hoods Bay led by a local expert.
