For this reason, excursions are a recurring component of the project work we undertake. We go on regular trips and explore the area around us. We take our older students on visits to parks, museums and theatres. Trips to parents’ places of work also provide an opportunity for students to gain new insights.
From Year 3 onwards, students take part in class trips within Germany. We think that it is important for children to develop a strong sense of community and expand their social skills. The school community supports children whose parents cannot afford all or some of the costs of these trips. The individual year groups generate money for this purpose by staging fund raising events such as theatre performances, cake fairs or concerts.
