Dear Parent

Hadrian’s Wall

As part of the work that I am covering in history lessons I have organised a trip to Hadrian’s Wall for all pupils in Year 6 which will take place on 19th May. We will focus on Brunton Turret, Chester’s Fort, and the milecastle at Housesteads. Children should be collected from school at approximately 4p.m.

Children should not wear school uniform. Pupils should wear their sports gear (polo shirt, sweatshirt, tracksuit bottoms, waterproof jacket, trainers) as this will provide protection from the weather. Please consider including sun cream and a hat in your child’s packing.

A packed lunch will be provided. Children may bring further supplies if they wish but no chewing gum and drinks must be in a re-sealable plastic bottle only. I will be carrying a first aid kit as the nominated first aider. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leaders. The trip will be subject to the conditions as set out in the Parent Contract, and will be covered by the school’s insurance policy. Please ensure if your child suffers from Asthma or severe allergic reactions their inhaler/medication/epipen is in school, if they do not have them, they will be unable to go on the trip. Pupils are not allowed to bring any personal items such as personal stereos, mobile phones or cameras. 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.

Pupils may bring pocket money (£10 maximum) to buy souvenirs.

As we will be using the school minibus for our transport, there will be no cost for this trip.

Yours faithfully

Mrs R Jones

History Department
