Trips and Visits
At Penwortham Primary School we firmly believe that enriching our curriculum with visits to places of interest linked to our curriculum and welcoming visitors into school is key to bringing the curriculum to life and support pupils to learn and retain knowldge and skills.
Our curriculum this year is firmly focussed on giving our children the experiences they have missed out on as a result of the COVID virus and ensuring that their learning is 'sticky'! This means our children will know more and remember more because they will be given lots of opportunities to revisit prior learning in different ways.
To see the type of visits and visitors we have in school visit our class pages but for a little flavour of what we have been up to in the Autumn term here's just a few of our visits and visitors -
Our whole school have enjoyed 'Dare to Aspire' workshops to help us be resilient learners following the Covid pandemic. We also loved sharing poetry with Ash Dickinson on National Poetry Day.
Reception class have had a visit from some of our parents to share with them the ways in which they celebrate festivals in their families. Reception class have also attended a baptism for baby Ben at Penwortham United Reform Church. They have also enjoyed their Forest School sessions.
Year 1 had a visit from the Creepy Crawly Roadshow to help learn about reptiles, insects, amphibians and mammals. They also had a visit from some of the volunteers and key members of Penwortham United Reform Church who shared more on how they live as Christians.
Year 2 have been for a local walk to learn about the history and geography of our school and local area and a visit from Lancashire Owls and Hawks.
