Educational Visits

We aim to provide opportunities that broaden the children’s experiences and believe that children learn best from first hand experience.  To support this we arrange a variety of visits and visitors to enhance the curriculum and extend the work in the classroom.  For example children have experienced trips to:

  • Norwich Castle for Victorian Days and Tudor Days
  • Gressenhall Museum to find out about life in World War II
  • Norwich City Football Club Study Centre
  • North Walsham Rugby Club Study Centre
  • Big Sing event at Catton Grove School
  • Sea Life Centre Great Yarmouth
  • How Hill
  • Banham Zoo
  • The Broads on a Cruise Boat
  • The Poppy Line

And been visited by:

  • Traditional Molly Dancers for dancing and traditional East Anglian stories
  • A theatre group performing Shakespeare
  • An Ancient Greek Soldier, A Tudor Lady, An Anglo-Saxon, World War 2 airman and land girl.
  • The School Waste Action Club to set up our compost bins
  • A didgeridoo player and tried it for themselves
  • Captain Splosh
  • A Capoeira instructor

Residential Visits

Every other year pupils in years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to take part in a residential trip.  This year the children visited Brancaster Millenium Centre.  In the past they have stayed at Wells Field Study Centre and Holt Hall.  This trip costs approximately £140 and parents have ample notice and an opportunity to pay by instalments.  The trip is always a huge success and a fantastic opportunity for our children to experience staying away from home, trying new things and learning at the same time.
