Local learning destinations

Select Destination Category
Visit to Diggerland
Children can learn to drive different machinery which develops their awareness of the various sizes and uses. Hand and eye co-ordination is highlighted as they manoeuvre the levers and pedals to work the different parts of the machines. Skills are tested as there are obstacles when driving the diggers e.g. skittles to knock down and ducks to hook. There is a Diggerland Grand Prix area which is laid out like a real road where the coin-carts have to be driven as if on a real road! Everyone watches a safety video before entering the main section and receive a certificate when they leave to say they have been a digger driver!
