Learners enjoyed trips to two museums in November to help bring their studies alive as they explored different aspects of the key stage 3 and key stage 4 curriculum.
A trip to the Oxford Natural History Museum was a sensory experience which allowed learners to handle exhibits and helped them visualise what they were learning.
This was followed by a visit to the Museum of the History of Science, also in Oxford, where learners were fascinated to watch demonstrations involving static electricity.
The visits also allowed learners to practice social and independence skills, as they took public transport to travel to and from the museums.
Many of the tasks the students undertake will help build competencies in citizenship, relating to others, managing situations and working as part of a team - all key to being fulfilled and employable adults.
