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.
Summer Term 2018
Sports Inspired Day
In June, year 4 and 5 attended a Sport Inspired Day at North Bridge Leisure Centre run by volunteers from Lloyds Bank. Children got the chance to try out a range of activities which are on offer in the local area including street dance, football, hockey, karate and athletics.
In May year 5 visited Bankfield Museum to learn more about World War II. We were greeted by a billeting officer who checked us to make sure that our hands were clean and we didn’t have headlice! We also met an air raid warden and looked at some artefacts from World War II. We tried on some outfits, made an Anderson shelter, wrote a postcard home and went into the cellar when the air raid siren sounded! We used our experiences to help us write a letter in role as an evacuee when we returned to school.
