At Iqra Primary we provide our pupils with the best enrichment opportunities to broaden their horizons and allow them opportunities to apply their skills and knowledge gained in a number of scenarios outside of their classroom setting. These experiences may be trips to local places of interest or visits from external experts.
Our teachers pay extra attention to planning half termly trips and workshops which enhance the pupils learning around various topics. So far this year pupils have visited: Windsor Castle (Dragons, Knights and Castles), Leeds Castle and Hampton Court Palace (Tudors), The Living Rainforest (Rainforests), Bracknell Discovery centre and Eton College for a Victorian workshop. Pupils have also participated in a number of external workshops linked to topics such as: The Great Fire of London, Life as a Roman Soldier and Victorian School Life.
Pupils from Year 5 and 6 have independently led a project to raise awareness on bridging the gap between the elderly and young adults of today’s society. They have worked very closely with a number of external companies and a local residential home.
In addition to this our Year 6 pupils are looking forward to their residential which is to St Briavels Castle in Wales.
