Educational Visits at Cadbury Heath
At Cadbury Heath we think Educational visits are vital to support our children's learning and bring to life concepts they are learning in the classroom.
When planning an educational visit, we ensure that there are strong links to the curriculum. Visits are often day trips to museums, castles and other sites of interest. In Key Stage 2 we also offer residential visits too.
In Year 4 children get to sleep over at the Evacuation centre (School hall) as part of their 'We Will Remember Them' unit of work where they learn about the impact of WWII on children just like them, and why children were evacuated from cities to the countryside.
In Year 5 we have a camp out on the school field. This links to their unit learning about refugees and immigration.
Finally, in Year 6 we have our week residential, where we take the children to stay at Le Chateau du Molay, in Normandy, France. This brings together all the children's learning over the last 6 years around why Remembrance Day is so important. The children visit the beaches where the D-Day landings took place, visit the British and American cemeteries as well as practise the French they have been learning in school.
