Curriculum Enrichment Through Residential and Educational Visits
During their time at Long Clawson, the children experience 2 residential trips:
Year 1 Residential: Beaumanor Hall near Woodhouse Eves for 2 nights. This is probably the first time many of the children will have been away from home without family and it is an important step in developing their confidence and independence. The children have a wonderful time thanks to the hard work of staff, and talk about it for many years to come!
Year 5 and 6 Residential: Our Year 5 and 6 residential includes activities such as climbing, high ropes and water sports. It is an invaluable experience for the children as the near the end of their time at Primary school.
As well as residential visits, our children enjoy a wide range of educational visits during the year. Purposefully chosen to enrich the curriculum, these are related to particular topics being studied in class. For example: swimming, theatre trips, museums, themed days at Beaumanor Hall, Manor Farm, National Trust days, and water sports at Rutland Water. We also bring visitors/ activities into school where appropriate, for example ‘The Creepy Crawley Road Show', planetarium, maypole and folk dancing, artists and sports coaches. The children are treated to an annual Christmas Panto by the Friends of Long Clawson (FoLCS) and embedded into the Reception Class curriculum is the hatching of butterflies and chicks.
