Teaching Outside of the Classroom
School enrichment at Meadowpark School is about providing safe, valuable learning experiences. This is part of what makes learning fun!
Our teachers love to teach ‘outside the classroom’. They therefore take the pupils on regular visits to places of interest. These hands-on experiences bring the pupils’ learning “to life”. The visits are educational and closely linked to the pupils’ subject of study.
Pupils have been able to experience at first hand Roman life at the Chedworth Roman Villa. They have put into practise orienteering skills and deciphered contour lines at the Coleshill Estates Iron Age Fortress. The rainforest also comes to life for our pupils when they visit The Living Rainforest in Newbury. Science and Mathematics are put into practise with cooking at Blunsdon House Hotel. Furthermore, we enjoy taking our pupils to Westonbirt Arboretum to study the changing season in Autumn.Book a visit
Pupils in year 5 and 6 are also offered residential trips. The off-site PGL Activity Centre being one of the most anticipated activities of the year. They experience a fantastic range of activities including raft building, canoeing, tree-top heights of the trapeze, zip wire and Jacob’s Ladder.
We also offer extra-curricular activities during the school day. Pupils can take part in lunchtime clubs such as gardening or audition to join the school choir.
We also teach all pupils in the school public speaking skills as part of the LAMDA syllabus.Book on an open day
