The importance of school outings

Going on outings are an integral part of learning for children. 

It affords them real-life learning experiences that they will remember for years to come, and going as a school group ensures that there will be a lot of learning along with the fun! At the end of the second term we went on two outings. We visited the Museum of Childhood, where we explored toys from yesteryear, as well as learning about Children’s Rights. We then wrote letters to the children who are convalescing at Red Cross Children’s Hospital. 

In the last week of school we ended our term’s theme of Evolution by visiting the Planetarium where we watched a show explaining DNA, and then explored the Human Evolution section of the Natural History Museum.
