In Key Stage 1 and 2, learning comes alive with regular visits outside the classroom and guest speakers within. In this way students can see how their learning can be put into practical use. Students may visit a local organization to see how recycled goods can be re-used or may visit a water-bottling plant to see the process of how water goes from a well or spring to a bottle in our local store.
Outdoor education is a very popular part of the programme we offer at KISU. Starting in Year 3, students take part in an annual outdoor education trip involving at least one overnight stay. These may include camping in the school auditorium (Year 3), camping in Entebbe (Year 4), adventures at Lakeside Activity Centre (Year 5), or camping at Lake Nabugabo (Year 6).
At the end of Year 6, students take part in a trip to the coast of Eastern Africa (Tanzania or maybe Zanzibar) as part of their topic, ‘Contrasting Landscapes’. They undertake a comparative study with land-locked Uganda, covering history, geography, economics and biodiversity.
