Educational Visits

Educational visits are an essential part of the Ninelands curriculum. The are considered a valuable way to enhance and extend children's learning, providing enriching social and cultural experiences, teaching life skills and providing a foundation for a lifelong love of learning. They provide opportunities that may not otherwise be possible within the limitations of the classroom environment. Our Curriculum Entitlement document, shared below details some of the many ways we provide these additional learning experiences at Ninelands. Some of our regularly planned visits include Filey, Conisborough Castle, Skelton Grange, Legoland Manchester, Danelaw Viking Village, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Temple Newsam, Sandsend, to name but a few.

Our Year 4 children go on a residential for 3 days to Robin Hood’s Bay to support their history, geography, science, art and English curriculum. This is an exciting opportunity for our 8 and 9 year olds to explore the world of 17th Century smuggling, rock pooling, the history of Whitby and Captain Cook, mapwork and fossil hunting. We stay at The Old School House in the old part of the village; we call it our 'classroom on the coast.' 
Year 6 go on an activity residential for three days which supports work in outdoor and adventurous activity plus many personal and social skills such as resilience, challenge, teamwork and respect. The main purpose of this visit is to give children the opportunity to experience character and team building activities. These include abseiling, archery, climbing, indoor caving, crate challenge, raft building, trapeze, zip wire, canoeing, nightline and more. Please take a look at the Robin Wood Activity Centre website for more details.
