Castle Head FSC Field Centre
Castle Head Field Centre is located within the village of Lindale; just a 10 minute walk from school. We work closely with staff from the field centre on area of the curriculum such as geography, history and science as well as our programme of residential experiences.
Residential experiences in conjunction with Castle Head
Our residential programme is a highlight of the school year. All children spend time initially at the Field Centre and then travelling further afield to visit other parts of the Lake District.
Reception and Year 1: A day at Castle Head linked to class topic
Years 2 and 3: Half a day familiarisation visit and then one night residential at Castle Head focusing on learning about their own abilities.
Years 4 and 5: Half a day familiarisation visit and 2 day residential at a centre in the Lake District focusing on teamwork
Year 6: Half a day familiarisation visit and 3 day residential at a centre in the Lake District focusing on learning to lead. Year 6 plan much of their residential as a group and take responsibility for different aspects of it.
Curriculum work with Castle Head
We have studied the history of Lindale and in particular the influence of John Wilkinson. We had a fantastic whole school History day where everyone dressed as characters from different periods of the village’s history. We had a wonderful assortment of highway men, Victorian ladies and labourers and current day walkers.
Selside Endowed C of E Primary School
