Everyone remembers the social aspect of the school trips they've been on - going on holiday with all your friends; why wouldn't you? Friendships are allowed to blossom outside of the classroom environment, and a sense of collegiality amongst the class is brought out by everybody having a good time all together. Thinking of another aspect, however, school trips teach all students how to engage with new people and in new situations. They will also learn the value of personal safety in different areas to the ones they are used to.
Today we took 110 students paintballing, I love getting involved in these days and believe School trips have a profound effect on the development of young peoples' character - whether they are six or 16, they will always learn something new about the place they visit, and about themselves. Often, students have the opportunity to visit places they might not have the chance to experience otherwise, opening up an infinite number of opportunities for interests, hobbies or even future careers that may not have been thought about in the classroom. Pupils develop a greater appreciation for their immediate world as well as further afield as they discover new cultures, history and skills. Going somewhere different, even if it's only five minutes up the road, provokes an innate curiosity amongst young people that allows them to thrive throughout the rest of their school and personal lives. Today was such a good day and the pupils had a great time, especially searching out their teachers on the field!
Hello everybody, my name is Lyanne Fellows. I am a mum to an 8 year old boy and five year old boy and girl twins. Before moving back to the North East I worked in Dubai as a teacher of Art and Graphic Design and acting Head of Department. This was a move prompted by having twins and not wanting to give up my teaching job. Before having my twins I was head of art and a teacher trainer working for 6 years with a cluster of academies in the Midlands. I am now doing cover work in Newcastle upon Tyne and looking out for a position that is right for me to develop and share my vision with. I am really excited for another fun filled year.
