Beechwood places high priority on our pupils developing a sense of the rich diversity of our country through first hand experience.
We offer an extremely high quality programme of residential visits for Key Stage 2 pupils, all embedded in pupils' current areas of study. Each year we currently offer residential visits for Y3 to Nell Bank, Ilkley, Year 4 to the Lake District and Year 5 to London.
In Year 6 we extend first hand learning to an international level with the opportunity to take part in a four day visit to Paris.

After a successful journey we arrived in London in time for Lunch in St James' park before visiting the Churchill War Rooms. Everyone enjoyed the war time experience and learning about Winston Churchill. We also walked to Buckingham Palace and saw that the queen was in, we though she might be watching television. This evening we enjoyed a lovely meal at Bella Italia before going too see War Horse. The realistic sound effects made us feel like we were actually in the war but we were glad it had a happy ending. We look forward to our busy day tomorrow!
