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 20th June. We will focus on Brunton Turret, Chesters Fort, and the Roman Army Museum. We will be leaving school at 8.45pm and should be back at school, traffic permitting for 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 and also suitable outdoor clothing. Please consider including sun cream and a hat in your child’s packing. Pupils may bring pocket money (£10 maximum) to buy souvenirs. A packed lunch will be provided. Children may bring further supplies if they wish but no chewing gum or sweets and drinks must be in a re-sealable plastic bottle only.

The trip will be subject to the conditions of the annual consent form, and will be covered by the schools insurance policy. A full risk assessment has been undertaken by the group leader. A qualified first aider will be accompanying the trips. Personal items such as mobile phones, personal stereos, iPods or cameras are not allowed. The school cannot be held responsible for the care of these items if any pupil brings them and insurance will not cover them. 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.

The cost of the day will be £5 which will be added to your autumn term fee bill.

Yours faithfully

Mrs R Jones
