We all really enjoy making the curriculum come alive. Taking our children out on trips to visit interesting places and explore their local environment as well as arranging for specialists to come into school, helps make Queen’s an interesting and vibrant place to learn.
Recent visits have included Zoo Lab who discussed the wonderful topic of Mini Beasts, the Pied Piper Theatre Company’s theatrical production of My Big Little Sister, World Book Day where everyone dressed up as their favourite characters, French Day where we celebrated France and a bird enthusiast bringing his collection of owls and hawks which generated much excitement, as did a visit from a Guide Dog!
We have also explored Science in the Bio Dome, visited Wookey Hole and participated in activities at Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre as part of our topic work. To see some pictures and write-ups about some of our trips and visits, please see our Live News.
Children in the Pre-Prep and Nursery are also fortunate to be able to benefit from other events within the school. These include joining in with sports days, school fayres, Grandparents’ Day, religious services, watching plays and music concerts, and visiting the art and sculpture exhibition during Quartz Week. Trips out and about to places such as the garden centre, Forest School, and lighthouses all enhance the learning experience.
