Educational Visits

The Educational Visits Co-ordinator is Yvonne Reeson, head teacher.

Class 3: Years 5 & 6

Class 3 go on a 4 day, 3 night residential visit in June each year. Historically, we have been to the Edale YHA Outdoor Education Centre in Derbyshire although, this year, we have made the decision to visit Edale once every two years.

In June 2023, Miss Houghton, the Class 3 teacher, led a visit to Windermere in the Lake District which was linked to the children's learning in History and Geography.

Activities in Edale include rock climbing, abseiling, kayaking, orienteering and lots more adventurous activities in the beautiful Peak District.

Activities in Windermere and Ambleside include a boat and steam train journey; a walk along the banks of the lake; a visit to the Motor Museum and a trip to the Beatrix Potter experience amongst other things.   





Class 2: Years 3 and 4

Class 2 go on a 3 day, 2 night residential during the summer term. This is usually a great introduction to staying away from home with their friends for the children. Mrs Reeson, the head teacher, leads the visits and we alternate our trips between the North Yorkshire coast around, Whitby, Scarborough and Robin Hoods Bay and the St. Michael's Education Centre in Hathersage which is owned by Nottinghamshire County Council. 

The coastal visit includes links to the History and Geography units of work. We visit Whitby Abbey and take part in the 'Monks, Monasteries and Monastic Life' tour; spend a day at Robin Hoods Bay fossil hunting, rock-pooling and orienteering, and take a trip into York to visit the DIG archaeological  research centre and the Jorvik centre.

The Hathersage visit includes a trip to Eyam, the plague village followed by a walk back to Hathersage across Eyam Moor; a visit to the Peak Cavern in Castleton; a bat hunt near the Church in the evening, and an afternoon of orienteering and stream dipping.
