Each year the children in Years 4-6 to take part in a multi activity, residential visit. The visit is always well supported by staff and children and takes place in the summer months each year.
A wide range of activities are available, these include:
High ropes/low ropes
The visit offers opportunities for the children to experience a wide range of exciting, adventurous activities, developing independence, team building, co-operation and self-confidence. Such character building qualities are recognised by Lower Farm in enhancing the life skills of our pupils.
In order to enrich our curriculum, the school provides pupils with opportunities to learn off-site to help improve their learning. Every year children (in Years 1-6) either go out to the theatre or have an acting company come into school to perform a pantomime. We feel it is important for all children to experience the theatre in order to culturally enrich their education and widen their experience of the world. Other trips embedded in our curriculum include:
Early Years: A Santa visit
Year 1: A Toy Museum to learn about toys in history.
Year 2: Think Tank Science Museum to learn about different aspects of Science.
Year 3: Cadbury World to learn about the Mayan civilization in history.
Year 4: Dudley Zoo to learn about classifying animals for their science work.
Year 5: Black Country Living Museum to learn about children in Victorian times for history.
Year 6: We make links with local secondary schools as part of our transition and wider opportunities, as well as a leavers trip at the end of the academic year to celebrate all of their achievements throughout their school life.
