We believe that part of our role as a primary school is to prepare our pupils for life and careers as responsible citizens in a global community. We encourage our pupils to go out and experience for themselves the wide range of opportunities open to them. With this in mind, we have built partnerships with industry, education, music organisations and the local and wider community.
This year, we have already enjoyed a visit from Andy Cope, author of the ‘Spy Dog’ series who led the children in creative writing tasks. We’ve benefitted from instructive talks on safety by the community police, and we’ve been looking at internet safety.
In 2012, pupils of Mobberley Primary School went to 10 Downing Street, took part in radio programmes, studied and performed with an opera company, played instruments on stage with the world famous Halle Orchestra, went on a residential visit to France and visited the war museums, worked with banks, learned gardening skills, took part in sports festivals, performed on stage in the annual summer show, and enjoyed supporting the annual Mobberley Rose Queen festival, dressed as traditional characters and performing as dancers.
It is part of our syllabus for our oldest children in class five to widen their horizons through an activity based residential. Last year, they visited the Abernant Outdoor Centre in Powys, North Wales, for an action packed 3 days of team building, skills, and high energy activities, including raft building, high ropes, canoes, kayaking, fencing and zip wire!
