Joint subject school trips

Discussion in 'School trips' started by Psychy, Feb 8, 2011.

  1. We're running a joint History, Geography and RE trip for Yr 7 this year. These subjects are taught discretely in all years by specialist teachers, but the school is keen for us to show more unity and encourage pupils to make links between the Humanities especially with cross-curricular skills. As a department, we think this is a great idea, but have no idea how to make this work! Do any of you run trips with other subjects? How do you co-ordinate follow-up work and preparatory lessons? Do you have any tips on how we can avoid this becoming a one-trip/three-follow-up-projects situation?
    Any ideas welcome!

    resumably if you did a castle/cathedral you could combine Religeon with history and also use the siting of the castle as geography.

    I am an RE teacher who also does combined hist and geog. I would suggest maybe a Norman church/abbey if you have one nearby. You have the religious/sacred space aspect, the Norman conquest aspect and talking about the local community/society for geography looking at settlement. Could you not combine a follow up activity by having them maybe research a building like they visited and creating a project and presentation on it. They can do the subject specific research in the discrete lessons but compile it all together as one
