Residential Visits

Residential Programme

 

To enhance our children’s learning experiences we have always provided the opportunity for our year groups, from yr2 through to year 6, to attend residential trips.  These overnight visits, sometimes one night and sometimes 2 nights as the children are older, allow for a wider scope of learning in a different environment and in a different dynamic.

 

We greatly value these experiences for the children as we find the children benefit in a variety of ways; the changes in learning environments engage the children in a different way from the traditional classroom situation; they initiate their own learning, exploring, discovering and creating; they become fully engaged and focussed in their learning; they are able to apply new and existing skills to related topics covered in school both before and after the visit. Many areas we visit allow teachers to explore cross-curricular topics such as tourism for example, using geography, history, language and data.

 

The relaxed environment amongst their classmates and teachers encourages the children to ‘gel’ and re-affirm their year groups team spirit and they are able to share other strengths and attributes not always apparent in school.

 

The many positive outcomes from our Residential programme are at the heart of Boughton Heath’s ethos;

“Our highest expectations inspire children to embrace learning and life as an adventure”
