Learning Outcomes: PSHCE, PE and Geography National Curriculum PHSCE By the end of a KS2 residential visit to Nell Bank... All children will have the opportunity to face new challenges like staying away from home and make informed choices about how to develop healthy lifestyles through meeting in new people and visiting new places. Most children will have the opportunity to identify and explain how to manage (perceived) risk in new situations. Children will have the chance to identify different types of relationship, and can show ways to maintain good

relationships with group leaders, centre staff and their classmates. Some children will demonstrate respect and tolerance towards people different from themselves by working well with others including with other groups on site. National Curriculum PE By the end of a KS2 residential visit to Nell Bank...

Most children will work with others to solve problems through sharing ideas; they will show the beginnings of reflecting on performance. Some children will constantly reflect on their own performance and that of the team using it to inform future problem solving in addition they will be aware of others and offer support when needed.

National Curriculum Geography By the end of a KS2 residential visit to Nell Bank... All children will recognise the similarities and differences between the Ilkley area and their home; they are able to talk about what they see and what they think. Most children will be able to describe and compare the physical and human features of the Ilkley area and offer explanations for some of those features. They will be able to offer reasons for some of their observations, views and judgements about places and environments. Children should recognise a need to improve or sustain environments.

Most children will be able to demonstrate a chronological understanding of key events in the history of Britain and be able to use their experiences on the Moors walk to illustrate changes. Some children will be able to relate their life experiences to those of past people and discuss the similarities and differences e.g. the archaeological dig.

National Curriculum Design and Technology By the end of a KS2 residential visit to Nell Bank... All children will develop knowledge and understanding of the materials and components needed to build a shelter and that staying warm is a basic requirement of all animals. Most children will use their previous experience to plan and communicate ideas to others and evaluate their success as a group through a process of evaluation e.g. role play of estate agent sales pitch. Some children will appreciate the differences in technology available to early peoples and be able to discuss with peers and adults the similarities and differences in the construction of shelters as well as offer ideas for improvements.
