School visits make learning fun for youngsters


Moredon Primary and Nursery School have had a term packed with fun, excitement and valuable lessons.

‘People Who Help Us’ has been part of a recent focus this term for the nursery children. They’ve been on outings to various places and have been lucky enough to have visits from many different people.

Their first visitor was a police officer, she explained how her job involved keeping everybody safe and showed the children her uniform and badge. The following week the children had the chance to dress up in firefighter suits. When Davina Sparks from the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service came in – she spoke about the serious dangers of playing with fire. A nurse was the next exciting visitor, who taught the children how to find their pulse and listen to their heartbeat. A particularly enjoyable activity the children took part in this term was a recycling workshop, carried out by Pam Jones from Swindon Borough Council.

The children learned about why we use different types of bins for different types of rubbish. The workshop proved to be a valuable lesson, as on a local walk to the Manor Garden Centre the children were disappointed to spot so much litter down the pathways.  Whilst at the Garden Centre, the children discovered all different types of plants and bought some to help brighten up the outside of the nursery.

The last visit the children made was to the local post office, where they bought stamps and posted Mother’s Day cards.

This term has been really busy for the children, but has been packed with fun experiences and lessons, provided at Moredon Primary and Nursery School. The ‘outstanding’ nursery, led by a qualified teacher, has space for up to 52 children a year, offering 15 hours a week in either morning or afternoon sessions.
