School Trips

Class Trips

At Bradworthy we firmly believe in the importance of enriching the children’s educational and general development through school trips.
These are sometimes day trips linked directly to a certain aspect of the curriculum, for example visiting the beach as a part of a coastal study.

These Year 2 children's science work on change is being supported by a trip to an ice cream factory while these
Year 6 children take part in a geography field trip to the river Torridge.

To find out about the class day trips that our children have been on go to the Class pages
by clicking on Year Groups and Classes.

Residential Trips

Years 5 and 6 will be visiting london in July 2011.
Year 4 will be visiting Penzance in June 2011.
Year 3 will be visiting South Devon.

We have developed a range of residential visits which we offer each year to children in Key Stage 2. We make every effort to ensure that the children are
provided with as many varied experiences as possible whilst on these trips and to keep costs as low as possible the school is committed to
subsidising them as heavily as they can. In 2006 / 2007 the school supported trips with an allocation of £ 3000.

While children are in Years 3 and 4 they have the opportunity to go on two three day residential visits to Penzance and Bristol.
The children visit places like The Eden Project, St Michael's Mount, The National Maratime Museum, The Roman Baths in Bath, @Bristol and Bristol Zoo.
They also go dry slope skiing, ice skating, bowling, take part in laserquest and visit the theatre.

While children are in Years 5 and 6 they have the chance to go on two five day visits to London and North Wales.

When we are in North Wales we always climb to the top of Snowdon, usually going up the Pyg Track.
This is quite an old photo from our last web-site but it shows the excellent view which we have been unable to see on several occasions because of terrible weather near the top.
Packed lunches in the rain, but worth it !!!

A few of the places that the children visit include the London Eye, The Tower of London, The Tate, The Natural History Museum, The Planetarium,
The Houses of Parliament, Blists Hill Victorian Town, Baumaris Castle, court and Gaol, and Alton Towers and Thorpe Park Theme Parks.
The children also visit the theatre in London ( to see the Lion King last time we went ), go dry slope skiing, ice skating, rock climbing, canoeing
and mountain walking ( including an ascent of Snowdon ).

On the way to wales we stopped off at Taunton Deane service station for a toilet break and to stretch our legs.

When we got to Birmingham we stopped at the Black Country Museum. The museum is a place where they have recreated times from a centuary ago. It was impressive seeing all the places in the town. We went down a mine and on a canal boat, some of us had to leg our way through which means push on the sides to move the boat.
Mr Stephenson bought hos group chips. Yum Yum!
We got to the hostel at 8.00pm and we were very tired.

The hostel was at aplace called Pen-Y-Pass. It is very high up and you can see the mountains out of the windows.

Mr Stephesnon said it was the worst weather he's been up in.
Everyone had a really challenging and good day.

On Friday we went to Alton Towers. We rode on some intense rides.
The best ones were Nemesis, Air, Rita and Oblivion.

Bath 2008

Year 3 Residential Trip to Bath and Bristol.

On the 11th JUne Class 3 went on a residential trip to Bath.They went for three days accompanied by Mr Stephenson, Mrs Brown and Mrs Davies. It sounds like they had a really good time at Bristol and Bath.

On the way up they stopped at Wookey Hole Caves to go underground and look at the different rock formations. Wookey Hole is an amazing place to go and Year 3 really enjoyed it, although some were afraid of the dark, including Mr Stephenson !!!

On the trip Class 3 visited @Bristol, the Roman Baths and SS Great Britain and on the way home they visited Cricket St Thomas which is a wild life park. In the evenings thye went to the cinema and saw Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull and they also went swimming at a leisure centre, which was apparently FANTASTIC !!

North Wales 2006

Wales Trip 2006

From Monday 3rd July to Friday 7th July
Some of the year 5’s and 6’s went on a school residential to Wales.
We left school at 7:00am.
We stayed at a youth hostel nearly at the base of Mount Snowdon.

On the way up we went to a Victorian village where you had to change your money into Victorian money and you could go into a Victorian pub and a sweet shop and it was really good.

On Tuesday we split into 2 groups. One group went canoeing whilst the other group visited the slate mines. In the afternoon we swapped over.

On Wednesday we were split in 3 groups one of the groups were called the fast group another was called medium group and the last group was the slow group.
The fast group set off first, then the slow group and then the medium group set off.
The first to reach the summit was Mr. Stephenson’s group with a guide called Ian.
Mrs. Brown’s group was next and their guide was called Stuart.
Unfortunately the third group only reached half way before they had to go back because of thunder and lightening. That was Mrs. Furness group and their guide was called Topper.

On the Summit of Snowdon

On our way up the Pyg Track

The Victorian Fayre

When we reached the summit nearly everybody phoned home.
In the evening after tea we all went swimming and most of us jumped off the diving boards. There were 3 different heights to choose from.
After swimming we went back to the youth hostel.

On Thursday the people who didn’t make it to the top of Snowdon went up by the train with Miss Daniels, Mrs. Furness and Dean (the coach driver), whilst the rest of the group went rock climbing.
In the evening we went to the cinema to watch
Everyone really enjoy it. When we got back to the youth hostel we had a drink and packed before going to bed.

On Friday before breakfast we had to give our suitcases to Dean and he loaded them onto the coach.
After breakfast we set off for Alton Towers.
We arrived back at school at 1:10am we were all very tired.

This was a very exciting trip which was a lot of fun with loads to do. I’m sure we will never forget it.

By Daniella Stevens

A Victorian sing-a-long in the pub ( no beer! )

Underground in the Slate Caverns

Climbing aTryfan Bach
In the 1950s a climber called Joe Brown and his friends slid down the Mountain Railway after their climbs by placing a flat rock on the centre rack of the line and their feet on the rails for balance.
That's unfair we had to walk down.

We got back at 1am on Saturday morning.These weren't the only "sleepy heads" !!!
Refresments were first served at the summit of Snowdon by an enterprising miner called Morris Williams in 1838.
We had to carry our own food up and we bought toys from the shop instead of refreshments.

Some people think that in good weather Snowdon is not that dangerous and that they don't need lots of fancy outdoor gear. Is this true?

Settled weather is rare and cannot be relied upon. So it makes sense to be prepared for a change. Many people have got into difficulties through lack of basic clothing and equipment.
When we walked up Snowdon the weather was boiling, we were wearing T-shirts and we couldn't stop drinking water. When we were walking down though there were hail stones the size of marbles. After that there wasloads of rain which got us soaked. It was a good job that we has the right gear.
