Adventures with a difference – Bringing the Curriculum to life
15th Sep 2012

The curriculum at All Hallows is always extended and enriched by trips and visits which broaden the children’s horizons and inspire their learning. This term has been particularly busy! The Year 5 children spent a pretty wet time on the River Wye as part of their ‘Rivers’ topic – they enjoyed some fun on the water as well as studying different sections of the river. Year 3 children enjoyed a visit to Moons Quarry and both Year 3 and Year 8 children visited the Roman Baths. As part of their ‘Castles’ topic in History, Year 6 journeyed to Chepstow Castle and immersed themselves in castle life for the day, while Year 4, as part of their WW2 topic, have experienced the Steam Museum at Swindon as evacuees – even being ‘selected’ or not to join the ‘family’ in question! They also visited the Bristol Museum as part of their ‘Dinosaur’ topic. Year 2 enjoyed a great day out at the Fleet Air Arm Museum and also visited East Cranmore Railway along with Year 1 for the ‘Santa Special’. Our Reception Class was involved in the preparations for the Shepton Mallet Carnival before lovingly building their very own Carnival Floats which were then ‘paraded’ to Mr Murphy’s room where they now have pride of place for all of our visitors to admire.

Phew – a busy term!
