Getting out of the classroom is an important part of the curriculum at Wings School Notts. Lessons can be enhanced and brought to life by visiting places to further explore certain topics and get hands on.
As part of the KS3 Science topic this half term the young people were given the opportunity to have a day at The Deep in Hull. They have been learning about Ecology this half term and how different species are adapt to their environment so they can survive. While at The Deep they had the opportunity to handle a star fish and learn about how starfish survive in their environment and what special adaptations they make in order to survive.
The Deep is one of the UK's most spectacular aquariums, with over 3500 fish, stunning marine life and plenty of activities for all ages.
Wings School Notts provides a broad National Curriculum with subject specific classrooms and learning spaces for science, history, geography, music, food technology, information technology and horticulture. Their 'Alternative Offsite Curriculum' allows children and young people who find working in a classroom difficult to re-engage in education working alongside local community groups.
The school are keen to provide opportunities like this for the children and young people as they are always a great success.
