As a school in the heart of the Skelmersdale community we are committed to integrating our children into local community life. Frequent educational visits provide unique opportunities for kinaesthetic learning (learning by doing) and encourage children to engage with people, places and buildings in new ways. This is particularly beneficial for our children who find visual and sensory experiences helpful to their learning and understanding.
During trips to local parks, shops, museums etc we are engaging our children in real-world learning. This allows our children to experience hands-on experiences which develop life skills such as handling money, exchanging money for food in shops, communicating with others and different ways to keep safe in the community (e.g. road/water safety).
