At St. Joseph’s we aim to plan a school visit each half term to support, consolidate and extend children’s learning in the wide range of curriculum subjects taught.
We acknowledge that visits to museums, galleries, castles, and many more places, make a valuable contribution to children’s learning in a motivating and stimulating way.
Annually, our Year 6 children attend a school journey in the Isle of Wight. It is a four night stay in a secure camp called `Little Canada‘. The children experience a range of outdoor and adventurous activities, such as abseiling and quad biking supervised by qualified instructors. They learn to work as part of a team, rising to physical challenges and developing orienteering skills.
The children develop socially, emotionally, and personally through each activity growing in self confidence and awareness. It is always a great end to their time with us as they prepare to leave for secondary school.
Here are some pictures of our children having fun on a trip:
