We understand the importance outdoor learning plays in a child's development. Our curriculum is based around providing children with first hand experiences and a deeper understanding of the topics they study. Educational visits linked to topics include Newcastle Gateshead Bus Tour, Housesteads Roman Fort, Whitehouse Farm, Centre for Life and Egyptian Museum, Durham.
In Key Stage 2, children enjoy residential trips, promoting independence and allowing all
children to thrive. Annual trips to Beadnell, Kielder Water and Edinburgh provide children with a range of adventures and experiences they will never forget.
Please see individual class pages for non-residential visits.
Year 6 - Edinburgh Explorers
Our fabulous Year 6 pupils ventured north of the border for their end of year residential trip. They enjoyed 4 action packed days visiting a number of the Scottish capital's historic landmarks and treats. The children were impeccably behaved and were a credit to their families and the school, proven by 5 members of the public praising them for their manners and behaviour. Well done Year 6, you are superstars!
Year 5 competition trip to Sol Katmandu, Majorca
As winners of the Jet2 Ultimate School Trip Competition, our Year 5 children spent 3 days at eth Sol Katmandu Holiday Resort in Majorca. Here are some photos to show the highlights of the trip. Please visit the Year 5 class page for more pictures and videos. The children had an amazing time and having been one of only 9 winners from across the country the once in a lifetime experience was well deserved.
Daleby House Thursday - Friday 2017
To finish the week we had another fantastic group of children. Looking back on the whole of the week I think all parents and careers should be very proud of their children as they have all been great and a real credit to you all.
We have crammed as much as we could in again. his group excelled at crab hunting and we spent a good part of the first morning finding crabs of all sizes, after lunch we spent a very wet and windy time on the beach investigating quicksand. After a lovely tea cooked by some new chefs we went out again for a game in the sand dunes and a cup of hot chocolate.
This morning we went for a walk along the beach the other way and found a fossil. we then went back to the sand dunes for a first aid challenge, that the girls won - but then they did have Ms. Gibson helping. All that and home before the end of school!
Daleby House Wednesday 2017
Look at all the things we crammed into our day; shopping, rock pooling, dune surfing, fire starting, history tour, first aid and Italian cuisine night. I am sure I have missed out a couple of things too. We were all sad to leave Beadnell tonight as it was just when the sun started to shine.
Daleby House Monday - Tuesday 2017
What a great first trip up. All the children were fantastic. We enjoyed the meal cooked by the children, found some very interesting things in the rock pools and battled Mt. Beadnell in the wind, all this and more in 24hrs!
Year 5 Residential Visit to Kielder
Each year, Year 5 pupils take part in a week of outdoor adventure at Hawkhirst Scout Activity Centre, Kielder, Northumberland.
Activities vary but usually include: orienteering, rock climbing, bell boating, zip wire, abseiling and team building. We also look closely at the human and physical aspects of one of England's most remote places. Instructors are AALA registered and all meals and specialist outdoor equipment are provided. In 2016, we incorporated Forest School into our timetable for the first time and the children had a great time whittling their cutlery, cooking their own meals and shelter building.
The children have been writing up their diary entries in the form of a blog.
