Field Trips & Residential
Children are encouraged to explore the environment and through practical observation and by reference to resource materials to broaden their experience of the world around them.
We recognise that to do this it’s vitally important that education takes place both within and outside the classroom. We arrange visits to museums, factories, theatres, history parks, folk parks or other places of educational interest. Each year a more extensive trip is organised for the P7 pupils which in the past has been either skiing or a visit to Holland.
Downey House Preschool had their first outing of the year to Green Leaf Forest School. The children travelled on the school minibus and enjoyed a sunny autumn morning hunting for hedgehogs, snacking on hot chocolate over the campfire and enjoyed free play digging and swinging in the forest and finished off by painting a campfire. Great fun was had by all!
