Getting out and about...

It’s been another busy term for trips, and we’ve had lots of fantastic days out to support our learning and introduce us to new experiences. For many children in Nursery and Reception, their trip to Aldenham Country Park was their first ever school trip - and a first opportunity to get up close with cows, pigs and sheep, too. Year 1 and 2 loved their trip to the pantomime in Welwyn Garden City (especially those of us who got squirted with water).


Year 5/6, meanwhile, felt that they’d had the best day out of the term after their trip to Harry Potter Studios, where they got to explore the Great Hall, Diagon Alley, Gringotts Bank and lots of other real sets from the magical films. This supported their work in English, and tied-in brilliantly with the Harry Potter Day that they organised back at school


In between all those adventures, Year 1/2 have been to Stevenage Fire Station to meet the firefighters, climb in the fire engines and use the hoses, while Year 5/6 spent a morning at Stevenage Museum looking at the way our town has changed over the last 75 years.

"The friendly and supportive atmosphere at Bedwell Primary School means that pupils feel safe and secure and enjoy their learning."
