Exploring Beyond the Classroom: RVIS Elementary School Field Trips By Ken Davis Director of Marketing and Admissions Published: 2023-12-06 05:27:48 Over the past few weeks, the elementary students embarked on a series of educational field trips, each an adventure in learning and discovery that extends well beyond the classroom walls.Grade 3 students experienced the thrill and challenge of ice skating at Dilmunia. This excursion was not only a fun-filled day but also an opportunity for students to apply the concepts of friction, gravity, and force from their science unit and experience them in a real-world setting, enhancing their understanding of the world around them.The exploration continued with Grade 2 and Grade 3 students visiting a local Pottery Village. Here, they witnessed the intricate art of pottery, connecting their classroom lessons in art and history to the rich cultural practices of Bahrain. This hands-on experience fostered an appreciation for traditional crafts and allowed students to see the practical application of their creative skills.Kindergarten, Grade 2 and Grade 4 students also visited Bahrain Fort, where they not only learned about Bahrain's rich history but also gained insights into the significance of preservation and archaeology. This trip reinforced their classroom learning about history and social studies, providing a tangible connection to the historical roots of their community.These field trips are a fundamental part of RVIS's commitment to engaging learning. By stepping out of the traditional learning space, students are able to see the practical application of their classroom knowledge in the real world. These experiences not only enrich their understanding but also inspire a deeper engagement with their surroundings and a greater appreciation for the diverse world they inhabit.RVIS believes in the power of experiential learning and the value of bringing education into diverse environments. These trips are just a few examples of how the school is dedicated to providing our students with a holistic education that prepares them for all aspects of life, both inside and outside the classroom. We look forward to continuing to offer such enriching experiences to our students, fostering a lifelong love for learning and exploration.
