Dear Parents and Carers,
As part of our Stone Age topic we have booked a visit for our year 3 children to the Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre at Craven Arms on Wednesday 14th September 2022.
The cost of this visit is £9.60 which covers the entrance fee, coach hire and insurance costs.
Under the requirements of the Education Reform Act 1988, we can only raise the cost by voluntary contributions. There is no obligation to contribute and children will not be treated differently according to whether or not any contribution has been made. However this visit can only go ahead if the level of support is sufficient.
The children will be learning about the great woolly mammoth and life in the Stone Age, and have the opportunity to take part in a variety of workshops exploring aspects of the Stone Age period.
The coach will be leaving school at approximately 9am and will return to school before 3.15pm.
Please ensure that your child wears forest school clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty but please wear a school jumper/cardigan, comfortable shoes and a warm waterproof. Your child will need a packed lunch, no glass bottles or fizzy drinks. School can provide a packed lunch if you are in receipt of free school meals. Please email A2168@taw.org.uk to arrange this. Otherwise we ask that you send lunch in a disposable bag, so that these can be disposed of after lunch, as there is nowhere to store lunch boxes.
Please log onto your “scopay account” tick the box giving consent for your child to attend the trip and make a voluntary contribution by Tuesday 6th September 2022.
If you have any questions/queries, please don’t hesitate to speak to Mrs Tamplin or Mr Irvine.
Miss V Tamplin and Mr L Irvine
Year 3 Class Teachers
