At Holy Trinity, we aim to provide the pupils with the opportunity to experience learning outside the classroom. Research suggests that there is a dramatic decline in the number of children in today’s society that experience natural spaces, compared to previous generations. As a result, the opportunities we provide within education are essential.
Throughout the academic year, Reception – Year 6, take part in events such as Earth Hour and The Great British Spring Clean.
Earth Hour officially involves switching off your non-essential electric lights for one hour, to stand united for each other and the one home we all share. As a school, we celebrate our commitment towards our planet in a variety of ways. For example, creating bird feeders, gardening, litter picking and audits of electrical appliances.

The Great British Spring Clean
The Great British Spring Clean is an annual litter picking event organised by the charity Keep Britain Tidy. The event spans approximately two weeks each year, and encourages local ‘litter heroes’ to take to the streets, parks and beaches of Britain to clear up as much litter as they can.

Educational Visits/Enrichment Activities
During the academic year, we aim for all children from Reception – Year 6, to experience a minimum of three educational visits/enrichment activities. Educational visits help to enrich the curriculum and provide all children with first-hand experiences. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the number of educational visits reduced during the last two academic years.
