Year 1 Trip to the museum of childhood

23rd January 2017

5th January 2017

Dear Parents/Carers,


I am pleased to let you know that we have arranged for all Year 1 pupils to attend a trip, on Monday 23rd January, to the ‘Victoria & Albert’ Museum of Childhood as part of our Toys on a Timeline topic. Children will explore the different toys through history and take part in an interactive workshop.


Please ensure your child is in school by 9.00 a.m. for registration as we plan to leave school at 9.30a.m. We will aim to return to school by 3.15 p.m.  Children should wear school uniform for the trip and bring a waterproof coat with them in case of adverse weather. Your child will need to bring a packed lunch (no glass bottles or fizzy drinks) or you may pre-order a Free School packed lunch. Please let the class teacher know by 13th January so it can be ordered. Children should not bring any money on the trip as there will be no opportunity to spend it.


We will need a small number of parent helpers, so please complete the slip at the bottom of this letter if you are available. We will contact you directly if you are needed.


The cost of the trip is £9.00 per pupil. As always, no pupil will be excluded from the trip, due to inability to pay. If you have particular reasons why you cannot make this payment then please do speak with us at school as you may be able to pay for this trip in small instalments. We do ask that full payment is made by 13th January. If not enough parents contribute to cover the cost of the trip then we will have to cancel and all payments received will be refunded in full.


Yours sincerely,




Miss Knight         Mrs Walter
