Dear Parents

Reception visit to the Great North Museum

As part of their topic on ‘Dinosaurs’, Reception pupils will be visiting the Great North Museum in Newcastle on Wednesday 20th January 2016 and will take part in a ‘Dinky Dinos’ workshop. They will learn about dinosaurs and how fossils are formed and then have the opportunity to see a life size T-Rex skeleton.

The party will travel by coach (M & D), leaving at approximately 10am and returning in time for the normal end of school day. A morning snack and packed lunch will be provided by school. The cost of £8.50 will be added to next term’s fees. Pupils are covered under the School’s insurance policy. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders.

Pupils should wear their normal school uniform and outdoor coat. Pupils are expected to demonstrate excellent behaviour at all times and to follow instructions given by the accompanying adults. Please could you ensure that the appropriate medication is given to their teacher on the day if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions, as without this they will not be allowed to go on the trip. Miss Dring and Mrs Waldock will be leading the group and both have first aid qualifications. Five adult helpers will accompany the group. If you would like to volunteer please complete the slip below and return it to Mrs Green.

We endeavour to take photographs on as many school trips as possible, please visit our website, Facebook and twitter pages to view a selection of photographs.

Please complete and return the attached form by Friday 11th December 2015.

Yours sincerely


Miss J Everington

Head, Nursery & Infant School
