Hampton Lucy Primary School

School Trips

The School organises regular trips for children, with each Class making at least one trip every year. Examples of recent trips below:

Compton Verney 'Pablo Picasso'

Compton Verney is showing the exhibition Picasso on Paper as part of their autumn season.  To accompany the exhibition they were able to host The Boy Who Bit Picasso, an interactive theatre show for children based on the book of the same name that tells the true story   Antony Penrose, a young boy with a very special friend, Pablo   Picasso.

On Thursday 17th November Class 2 along with other schools in our Cluster had the opportunity to visit Compton Verney for a guided tour of the exhibition with a member of the  Picasso.  Both the  exhibition and the production explored recurring themes within Picassos work and the children engaged in a range of activities to support their learning.

Class 4's Trip to The Birmingham Botanical Gardens

As part of their topic exploring African Rainforests, Class 4 visited The Birmingham Botanical Gardens. They developed their understanding of the Scientific and Geographical aspects of the rainforests with an interactive workshop that included meeting live animals and using a blow pipe! They were able to “visit” different climatic zones as they explored the different greenhouses, investigating the plants that grow in diverse conditions around the Earth.
