11th January 2017

Dear Parents/Carers,


We are very pleased to announce that we have arranged for all Year 3 pupils to attend a trip, on Wednesday 8th February, to Belhus Wood Country Park, as it is linked to our topics Rocks and Detectives and Active planet. The cost of the trip will be £9 per child; this will include the coach journey and the exciting workshop, where the children will be armed with digging equipment and will step back in time to see the layers of soil, mulch and leaf litter that builds up over 100s of years. They will find out about different components of soils and their importance as a natural resource and they will investigate permeable and impermeable rocks.


Children must wear school uniform so that they are easily identified and sensible shoes for walking. They should bring a warm water proof jacket, and a water bottle.


The children will also need to bring a packed lunch which should not include sweets, fizzy drinks or glass bottles and be free from nut products. If you would like a packed lunch provided by the school please let us know on the slip below as packed lunches will need to be ordered by Wednesday 25th January.


All money must be paid by Wednesday 25th January 2017. As always no pupil will be excluded from the trip, However, if you are finding it difficult to make this payment then please do speak with us. If we do not receive enough parental contributions to cover the cost of the trip, we will have to cancel and all payments received will be refunded in full.


We will need a small number of parent helpers, so please indicate on the slip at the bottom of this letter if you are available. We will let you know if your are needed.


Please ensure your child is in school by 8.40 a.m. for registration as we plan to leave school at 8.50 a.m. We will return to school by 3.15 p.m. 


Yours sincerely,



Miss Childs          Miss Jordan                 Miss Rees
