Parrots and Toucans Trips, Visitors and Events

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.

Year 3 went to Cliffe Castle to launch their Ancient Egypt topic. We had a brilliant day and got to have a look at some of the amazing artefacts that are kept at the museum. We learnt about the beliefs of the Egyptians, cracked a code using hieroglyphs and we got to have a go at mummifying a body! Can you believe that they thought the brain was not important and threw it away?

 

Earning a pen licence is a proud moment. At Savile Park we award children a pen licence: a certificate that states that they are now allowed and expected to use ink for both their schoolwork and homework. ‘Pen licences formalise the transition from pencil to ink.
