Year 7 students at Greenfield Community College have been given the opportunity to extend their learning whilst enjoying their first field trip.  The new cohort of students have been settling in well at their new school and were excited to spend time finding out more about the Geography and History of Newton Aycliffe.

The Humanities Trip meant that the students extended their learning covering topics from History, Geography and RE.  They were also given the chance to meet the public and ask pertinent questions to help in their field study.  The groups were polite and enthusiastic interviewers creating a lasting impression whilst learning more about the town, the people and demographics of Newton Aycliffe.

“Students in Year 7 enjoyed the Humanities Trip over the 16 and 17 September, exploring the history and geography of Newton Aycliffe Town.”  said Mr Robson, Subject Specialist

The students conducted themselves very well during the trip and were able to learn more about their town and align their newfound knowledge to their academic studies.  It was a great chance to work outside the classroom, something that has been rare over recent times. 

Thank you to all of those involved in helping to make this a great learning experience for the young students.
