Dear Parents,

Year 2 Trip to Captain Cook’s Birthplace Museum: Tuesday 18th November

As part of our history topic about the life of Captain Cook, year 2 will be visiting the Birthplace Museum, Marton. The purpose of the visit is to learn about the life of Captain Cook and how his explorations have influenced British history. The children will have the opportunity to combine history with an element of literacy, drama and art as they scribe, handle replica tools and act out scenes depicting life on-board a ship.

We will be travelling by coach, (Compass Royston) and will be leaving school at 9.20am. We will return to school at approximately 3.20pm.

The day will consist of a guided tour of the museum in the morning and then activities in the Discovery Centre in the afternoon. The children should wear their school P.E polo shirt, tracksuit top, bottoms and trainers. They should also bring their school waterproof coat. The children also require a small backpack for their packed lunch, which will be provided. The children may also bring a small named bottle of water.

Please could you ensure if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions that the appropriate medication is given to their teacher on the day, without this they will not be allowed to go on the trip.

Pupils are expected to demonstrate excellent behaviour at all times and to follow instructions.

Pupils are covered under the School’s insurance policy. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders Mrs Summers and Miss Thompson. A qualified first aider will be accompanying the trip.

The cost of the trip is £8.00, which will be added to the next term’s school fees.

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


Yours sincerely


                        Mrs G Summers                            Miss C Thompson
