At Beever Primary School we believe that educational visits play an important part in the overall development of the child. These allow them the opportunity to participate in, and benefit from, a range of activities and experiences that serve to extend and consolidate their learning, as well as develop their personal, spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) awareness and understanding.
We aim to provide children with experience of a rich variety of environments which contribute to making learning enjoyable and enabling the children to visit places they might not otherwise see and undertake activities in which they might not otherwise participate.
Recent educational visits have included:
Year 4 pupils visiting the Liverpool World Museum to learn about the importance of evidence and artefacts to help the children learn about life in ancient Egypt, including taking part in a workshop to mummify a body!
Year 3 pupils visiting the Tatton Park in Cheshire as part of their Anglo Saxon topic and Year 5 children visiting Chester’s Dewa Roman Experience part of their topic on ’The Romans’.
Beever Primary School, in recognition of the importance of these educational visits, heavily subsidises all out of school trips to ensure the cost to parents is kept to a reasonable amount. We use pupil premium grant funding to support this. We endeavour to ensure that each educational visit costs up to a maximum of £5 per child.
