Year 1’s ‘Incredible Me’ Trips

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th October 2021 | Key Stage 1

Year 1’s theme this half term was ‘Incredible Me’, and in Topic we have been learning about our local area: Croydon.


Our two trips to Addington Hills and Park Hill Park were a fantastic opportunity for boys to explore the human geographical features of Croydon. We saw the different types of residential and commercial buildings near and far - all the way to Canary Wharf!


On an almost sunny day, eighteen super excited boys went on their first-ever school trip to Addington Hills in the school minibus to see the amazing views of London. Luckily it was a clear day, and we were able to spot the London Eye, The Shard, Crystal Palace Towers, and the Saffron Tower in Croydon. Boys walked around in the woods and enjoyed a snack deep in the woods.

Our second trip involved walking to and from the local Park Hill Park. The boys enjoyed walking to the park, but of course more than that they enjoyed playing in the play area which was clearly the highlight of the trip. The weather was not so great to begin with, but by the time we were in the park, we definitely saw a bit of sun. 


We also saw the fascinating historical Water Tower and learned more about it in our topic and art lesson the following week. Watch out for Year 1’s artistic contribution to our annual school calendar later this year.


On both trips, boys came smartly dressed in their uniforms and were well behaved and courteous. They represented Elmhurst in an exemplary manner and were even complimented for their exceptional behaviour by a teacher from another school group. Well done Year 1; Mrs Marsh and Mrs Ahmed are very proud of you and we look forward to organising more fun trips!
