At Cyril Jackson, educational visits, experiences and workshops are embedded across all subject to ensure all pupils have high quality experiences on which to connect their learning. We believe it is vital for all pupils to experience first-hand the curriculum to enable them to make sense of the wider world and make connections to their everyday learning . These experiences provide to commit their learning to long-term memory through practise.
Subject leaders think carefully about where and when these experiences are planned into the learning journeys to ensure pupils get the most out of them whilst still enabling them to have those ‘awe’ and ‘magic’ moments.
Pupils visit a range of organisations including museums, galleries, religious buildings and parks. When pupils leave Cyril Jackson at the end of Year 6, they will have visited the following places in London:
- Bethnal Green Toy Museum
- Hyde Park
- A Mandir, Synagogue, Mosque and Church
- Natural History Museum
- British Museum
- Imperial War Museum
- Tate Modern
- Tower of London
- Centre of the Cell
- Residential trip in Year 6
Educational visits and trips are part of the school curriculum and are carefully planned to support the learning of your child. On entry to the school, you are asked to sign a form allowing your child to visit local places of interest where no transport will be required. For visits further afield, you will be asked to sign and return a permission slip.
For some educational trips there is a small cost to cover admission fees, workshop costs or specialised tickets. To ensure we can offer all pupils high quality trips and workshops across their time at Cyril Jackson Primary School, we ask parents for a voluntary contribution to make these possible. With parental support, we can continue to ensure all pupils at Cyril Jackson have valuable educational visits that enrich their learning.
