TRIPS AND VISITS TO ENHANCE OUR CURRICULUM 2018-19

At Cherry Orchard, we like to involve children in events that will 'hook' their interest in a topic and give them practical experiences which help them to put their learning into context.  We aim to provide the children with at least one trip or visit per term, but we also like to get our children involved with other events that may take place locally during the year.  Here is a list of all the extra-curricular events that took place in the last academic year.  As well as trips, we also like our pupils to participate in competitions.
