Educational Visits

For each half term topic, a well thought-through learning opportunity is provided to both contextualise and deepen learning, whilst encouraging a love of the learning. This enrichment opportunity could be a trip out or a visitor or experience in school. 


In the Autumn Term the following enrichment activities related to curriculum occurred:


  • FS2 Wonder Dome
  • FS2 Fundamentals Festival
  • Year 1 Cross Country
  • Year 2 trip to Eyam as part of the history curriculum
  • Year 3 visit to a Sikh Guardwara
  • Year 3 Cresswell Craggs 
  • Year 3 visit to Pride Park as part of Linking Schools.
  • Year 4 visit to a Hindu Temple
  • Year 5 Open Centre
  • Year 6 Shakespeare Play
  • Year 6 Transform Trust Fun Run
  • All KS2 classes visited Allestree Library (FS2 and KS1 to visit in the Spring or Summer Terms)
  • Chance to Shine Cricket
  • Whole school Internet Safety workshops/play
  • Stranger Awareness sessions
  • Whole school visit to the local church at Christmas
  • Choir visit to perform at Park Farm Shopping Centre


In addition, sporting opportunities are provided throughout the year for all pupils; attending events, tournaments or skill based sessions with other local schools.


In Year 4 a residential gives pupils the opportunity to experience time away from home in a safe but challenging outdoor environment. This trip encourages teamwork, resilience, problem solving, initiative and empathy.....all our values here at Lawn.


In Year 6, a longer residential develops pupils independence further and encourages pupils to take safe risks, have a strong growth mind-set and prepares them for being secondary ready.
