Educational visits are an integral part of the learning experience for pupils at RGS Springfield, from the Nursery to Year Six.
Trips can clarify and enhance the activities which take place in the classroom, both socially and academically. We offer day and residential trips in Years Three to Six. Our planned programme, particularly the residential element, has been developed to provide a carefully balanced programme.
- By providing new physical and mental challenges in adventure or activity trips, thus giving pupils the opportunity to develop their independence, leadership and confidence
- By providing opportunities to clarify pupils’ understanding of key areas of the curriculum by showing the material studied in a new context
- By allowing pupils to develop stronger relationships with fellow pupils and with staff through an enjoyable experience
Recent trips have included days out to the Houses of Parliament and Stratford Upon Avon, as well as residential trips in Years Five and Six to France and Osmington Bay. Years Three and Four have enjoyed shorter residential stays in the Wye Valley and the Malvern Hills.
‘The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one’s appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.’ Amelia Earhart, aviation pioneer and author, 1897-1937
