Learning is not confined inside the walls of a classroom. The world around us is filled with opportunities to extend our knowledge and thinking skills.
By taking their learning into different environments children are taught a variety of life skills: how to contextualise prior learning; respond appropriately to new environments and experiences; interact professionally with people of different occupations, and gain inspiration and motivation for further learning, are but a few of such life long learning skills.
A lot of careful thought, planning and preparation is put into each activity to ensure pupils gain as much as possible from the experience whilst being safe and supported. The benefits of this are easy to see in the enjoyment and enthusiasm shown on children's faces! The learning and outcomes of these real life, hands on experiences in the community are key to the success of skill development for Pre-prep learners.
