Educational Visits

At Ryders Hayes going on educational visits means more than simply leaving the school grounds. Educational trips always have a major educational element, but the impact of educational trips extend much further. The importance of educational trips includes giving pupils the chance to: link their learning and apply to new context; build closer bonds with their peers; experience new environments, and enjoy a day away from the classroom.

Reinforcement: Our visits reinforce discussions in class and support children to better understand the topic.

Engagement: Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, allowing children to: collect data; find new sources of information and relate classroom learning, later creating low-state quizs or project-based learned from the visit.

Socialisation: Taking children into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group; being responsible, teaches them to be respectful of members of the public, staff at the site and of the locations they visit.

Exposure: Children get to visit a place to which they have never been before; explore new horizons and develop their cultural capital. 

Retention - The type of memories that educational trips create- episodic memories- help children to retain information for longer.
