We aim to develop knowledge and understanding through interaction, role play, participation, experience and investigation of Key Stage 1,2 and 3 National Curriculum and QCA programmes of study in history, literacy, personal, social, health, citizenship education, art, maths and geography.
We aim to develop positive attitudes and values through increased self-confidence and motivation as well as greater empathy and understanding towards other people and communities. Following a visit, pupils should realise how attitudes towards the poor changed during the Victorian era. Our programmes cover many of the requirements of personal, social, health and citizenship education.
We aim to develop thinking, communication and social skills through debates, decision-making and activities which focus on different interpretations of history to help children to make deductions based on historical primary sources. Children will have the opportunity to use their imagination and experience the lives of other people living in different places and times. We aim to stimulate curiosity and creativity and enable all children to experience success as learners during a memorable and enjoyable educational visit.
I’ve had to drag my kids home, they’ve learned loads & been inspired. We’ll definitely be back for similar events.
