One of the main aims of our curriculum is to create aspirational learners that always strive to better themselves so that they can make a positive impact in their own community. We organise exciting cultural visits to inspire our pupils, giving them the opportunity to visit stimulating learning environments and to meet inspirational people. Some of our most recent cultural visits include:
- An art visit to the Lowry Art Centre in Salford, followed by a meal in China Town in Manchester.
- Afternoon tea in York and a tour of the historical sights.
- Winter sports visit to Xscape in Castleford to undertake skiing and tobogganing.
- Theatre trip to the Cinderella pantomime.
- Horse Riding

For the competition entry, we challenged the children to research a famous inventor and then present their findings. We had some very high-quality entries.
The 14 winners visited the Magna Science Centre in Sheffield for their culture prize. The children enjoyed the practical learning activities in each of the four zones: water, fire, wind and Earth.
In September 2022, Mrs Butterworth launched the first Culture Competition of the academic year. Our challenge was to create some memorabilia to celebrate our new King; King Charles III !

Fourteen children won the competition, and took part in the special prize day linked to being Kings and Queens.
