Reception

The Reception boys go on three main trips every year and numerous small local visits as appropriate to the interests of the moment.  These small trips occur within the school day and are always within walking distance of the school.

In the Autumn term the boys go to the Waterman Arts Centre in Brentford, or the Polka Theatre in Wimbledon to see a production designed for their age group.

The Spring term trip is a visit to the Natural History Museum to find out about dinosaurs and to see a small puppet play about growth and development.

The Summer term trip is a visit to Kew Gardens to explore plants, growth and development and life cycles more thoroughly. This is a wonderful open air trip exploring the bug trails, badger setts and wealth of plant materials available.

In addition there are numerous small trips through the year.  Reception have done some Forest School type trips in the local park in Harvard Hill, they have gone to St Michael’s in Elmwood Road to find out about Easter, they have been to the Vicarage Garden at St Paul’s to complete a bug hunt and they have been to Chiswick Business Park to look at their composting and recycling activities and their bee hives.
