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.
Children took part in a Life in Anglo Saxon York workshop at Yorkshire Museum.
They met Oshere the Thane and his wife Aelle, and decide if they were willing to be Oath Helpers for Eadgar, accused of stealing bread made for the Thane’s feast. They explored life in Anglo Saxon York in the 11th century. The children handled museum artefacts and took part in activities to find out about home life, manufacture, artistry and religion in Eoforwic. The activities included braiding, weaving, dressing up and practising intricate engravings.
Forbidden Corner – is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises. The children could use their imagination to make great story writers for their mystery writing.
Tesco Farm to Fork Trail – learning about seasonal food and cooking food based on seasonal ingredients. As well as where our food is grown.
