Inspiration for Your Next School Trip
If you’re struggling to bring a subject to life, the best way to engage your students is to allow them to experience the topic first hand. Of course, we’re not suggesting inventing a time machine and sending your students back to Roman times, but there are places you can go which will pique the children’s interest.
For example, if you want to teach your children about the force of gravity you could take them to Jump Xtreme Trampoline Park in Tamworth and embrace your inner child for the afternoon whilst explaining what forces are at work.
When you want to get your children in the great outdoors to learn about wildlife and nature, why not pay a visit to Woodlands Adventure & Outdoor Learning in Walsall? You could participate in a nature walk, pond dipping, stream walking or search in the undergrowth for as many different species as you can find. Older children will also enjoy outdoor activities including raft building, paddle sports, archery, high ropes, abseiling and much more.
If local history is high on your list of priorities, the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley is an open air museum set in an industrial landscape. Immerse yourselves in real life experiences and the stories which have been passed down and help us to understand what it was really like to live and work within an industrialised area.
If you have a budding amateur dramatics group, partaking in a backstage tour of The Crescent Theatre will help students to understand what happens behind the scenes during a performance. Talking to the director after a show will give your students a unique insight into the scenes they have witnessed and the themes explored whilst meeting cast members will also present students with an opportunity to discover their path into their dream profession.
