Our ‘Learning Away Program’ is integral to our school vision and curriculum. The programme supports and nurtures all of the learning behaviours we develop in our children on their learning journey through Henry Whipple. Learning Away is used as a 'hook' for engagement into new topics and themes which includes day trips and in school visitors and to immerse children into learning in a variety of ways.
Learning Away-Residential Visits- UPDATED 2016
To further develop learning behaviours including resilience and independence all year groups from Year 2 to Year 6 will take part in Learning Away Residential in September 2016. All year groups will stay for 2 nights in youth hostels and take part in a range of activities, with Year 6 staying 3 nights.
