There are several categories of trip. One may be to directly support a part of the curriculum such as a museum containing Roman artefacts or a field trip to a farm. It may be just to provide a broader context to a part of the curriculum. It may be to develop the children in areas not covered in the classroom such a residential activity trip to develop confidence and teamwork. Or it may be just for fun such as a trip to a theme park. Many trips may actually be a combination of two or more of the above.
