Dear Year 4 parents/carers,
As you are aware, Year 4 are going on their first trip of the year this Friday, to Go Ape! at Coombe Abbey. On Friday morning, they should arrive at school at the normal time. They should however come in their school PE tracksuits. They should also bring with them:
- A coat or jacket (just in case it is cold or wet)
- A packed lunch*
- An additional drink and snack
*Those children who receive free school meals will have a packed lunch provided. If you usually pay for a school dinner and would like the school to provide a packed lunch, please let the office know by the end of the day tomorrow (Tues 10th Sep) so that the catering staff can ensure that this is ready.
We will be travelling to Go Ape via two minibuses and a car.
Our adventure session at Go Ape is during the morning. Once we have finished this we will have lunch at Coombe Abbey and complete some additional activities around the country park during the afternoon. We will return to school for the end of the normal school day.
If you child is nervous/worried about the trip please reassure them that we are going for fun and to challenge ourselves – they will not be forced complete any particular activity! In all honesty, I’m a little nervous (and excited) too! Also, if you are yet to pay, please do so via Sims Agora at your earliest convenience.
Mr A Cooke
