Headteacher: Mrs J Boylan
At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.
Teddy takes a tumble
Our visitor came to encourages pupils to consider their safety whilst travelling in a car.
During the session, year 1 saw a crash demonstration using a purpose built ‘toy’ crash vehicle, they now understand how seat belts keep us safe. They also read through the ‘Teddy takes a tumble’ story and tried out a pupil car safety seat or booster cushion on a demonstration car seat.
Trip to Manor Heath – as part of their trees and seasons topic. Which included observing, recording and labeling trees.
Exploring in the dark – as part of our science lesson aspects of dark and light. We had a torch picnic in the hall.
Tesco Farm to Fork Trail – A special visitor from Tesco’s talked about whether the food we eat is a fruit or vegetable. The children also looked at food which grew underground, on the ground, on a plant or on a tree. Tracy Smith talked about where in the world the foods came from.
Owls – as part of year 1’s topic of owls they had a visit from Wise Owl birds of prey rescue. The children were told about different types of owls and how to distinguish them.
