At Great Eccleston Copp, we understand how learning can be brought to life and contextualised by appropriate and well-planned visits.
Educational visits are carefully mapped out within subjects to ensure children receive a variety of experiences throughout their journey through Great Eccleston Copp CE Primary school. For example. in geography, children visit the local area to secure understanding of map reading or in history, children visit an old working mill to enhance their understanding of the Industrial Revolution.
Educational visits not only enhance our curriculum, but are used also within Physical Education where classes in Upper Juniors visit Winmarleigh and Tower Wood to make the most of the Outdoor and Adventurous activities.
As much as educational visits build on curriculum knowledge, skills and experience, they also build resilience, problem solving, communication and understanding of the world around us.
