Each year the children in year 4 have the opportunity to experience a one-night residential trip. In recent years these have been to York or Llanberis. The class have studied a locality that is very different to Goostrey as part of the Geography curriculum and also looked at historical influences in these areas. It is a great opportunity for the children to become more independent especially as for many of them this is their first experience of being away from home without their families.
Every year, the children in Year Five spend two nights at Burwardsley Outdoor Education Centre. The children visit Beeston Castle; take part in outdoor activities as part of the PE curriculum and explore the local area as part of the Geography curriculum. It is great fun and helps to develop the children’s independence skills in a safe environment.
Every June, Year Six are given the opportunity to visit the Kingswood centre in North Wales for four days of action packed adventure. The children are kept busy from early morning until late in the evening taking part in activities such as climbing, caving, abseiling, quad biking, archery and zip wire.
The children have a brilliant time experiencing extra-curricular activities in a safe environment.
