Dear Parents,

Year 2 Trip to Bede’s World: Wednesday 20th May

As part of our Religious Studies topic on St. Bede, Year 2 will be visiting Bede’s World in Jarrow on Wednesday 20th May.  The object of the visit is to learn about the life of St. Bede in the Monastery. The children will have the opportunity to combine history with an element of literacy as they scribe, handle replica tools and materials and write with a quill pen.

We shall be travelling by coach (Compass Royston) and will be leaving School promptly at 8.50am so all children need to be in school by 8:30am. A packed lunch will be provided by school. We will return to School at approximately 4pm. The cost of the trip will be £15.50 which will be added to the next term’s school fees.

During the day we will be engaged in various outdoor activities and the children will be wearing costumes provided by the centre. The children should wear their school P.E shirt, sweatshirt, tracksuit bottoms and trainers. They should also bring their waterproof coat. We also advise that sun cream of the ‘once a day’ type should be applied before school. Pupils are expected to demonstrate excellent behaviour at all times and to follow instructions given by accompanying adults and the centre staff.

Pupils are covered under the School’s insurance policy. Mrs Summers and Miss Thompson will lead the trip. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders. A qualified first aider will be accompanying the trip. Please ensure that you have notified school of any changes to your contact numbers and any new medical conditions for your child and ensure any inhalers/medications are given to your child’s teacher to take on the trip.

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


Yours sincerely


Mrs G Summers & Miss C Thompson
