Year 5 Natural History Museum Trip

17th March 2017


Dear Parents/Carers,

We are pleased to let you know that we have arranged for all Year 5 pupils to attend a trip to the Natural History Museum, as part of our ‘Life Cycles’ topic, on Friday 17th March.

During the visit children will have the opportunity to learn about the way animals adapt to their environments, evolve to fit their habitats and fit into the global ecosystem.


We will be leaving school to make the journey by coach at 8.45 and need all pupils to be in from 8.30 to register. We will aim to return to school by 3.30 p.m.  In case of traffic, please check with the office, as we will inform them of any significant delays on our journey.


Every child will need a packed lunch (no glass bottles or fizzy drinks). Packed lunches should be in strong, disposable carrier bags in order to be easily disposed of. If your child is currently in receipt of Free School Meals and you wish to order a school packed lunch, please let the school know by Friday 3rd March. Children will not have the chance to visit the shop but there is an online site for anyone wishing to make a purchase.


We will need a small number of parent helpers, so please complete the slip at the bottom of this letter if you are available and we will get back to you as soon as we can.


The cost of the trip is £9 per pupil.  Please send this into school, with your slip, as soon as possible. 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, please do speak with us at school as we may be able to help out in individual cases through the use of a payment card at the office. 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,


Mr Trezise                   Miss Horsnell          Mr Groome
