Mallard Primary School believes that educational visits are an integral part of the entitlement of every pupil to an effective and balanced curriculum. Appropriately planned visits are known to enhance learning and improve attainment, and so form a key part of what makes Mallard Primary School a supportive and effective learning environment.
Here are some of our most recent school visits:
Foundation Stage -
Year 2 - Yorkshire Wildlife Park
On Wednesday 29th September, Year 2 visited Yorkshire Wildlife Park as part of our theme: Endangered Animals. We explored the park meeting vulnerable and endangered animals, as well as some that are actually now extinct in the wild. During the day, we also attended the ‘Bear Necessities’ workshop where we found out all about the park’s polar bear conservation project, got to know the residents of ‘Project Polar’, and to learn how their bodies are adapted for life in the Arctic. We had the opportunity to handle polar bear claws and skulls as well as to measure up our feet and hands against life-size casts of polar bear footprints. We then found out about how we can help to conserve a polar bear’s natural habitat, and took the polar bear promise: ‘I promise to turn off the lights’.
