Wider opportunities

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.

Last year:

  • The Reception class visited the Blue Planet Aquarium. They really enjoyed learning about different under water creatures.
  • The Year 1’s had a trip to Kenyon Hall Farm, to see how plants and vegetables grow.
  • The Year 2’s had a trip to Thurstaton Country Park for a ‘Life at the Seashore Day’ looking at physical and human features, have a natural and man-made scavenger hunt and create man-made sculptures.
  • The Year 3’s visited Tatton Park for a Stone Age day where they looked at artefacts, build stone age shelters, light fires, went foraging and made their own flour.
  • The Year 4’s went to Chester for a Roman Experience day. They learned about life in Roman times, archeology and about Roman soldiers.
  • The Year 5’s went to Safety Central in Lymm. They learned about safety in the home, on the road, on the internet and around water and also visited Chester Cathedral for a Pilgrim day.
