Dear Parents

As part of their science work on adaptation, I have arranged for Year 6 pupils to visit the National Birds of Prey Centre in Helmsley on 28th April.  Here, they will be able to study different birds of prey, discuss their habitats and conservation, and also see a flying display.  There is also a specially designed “ink trail” for visiting children.

We will travel by school minibus and will leave school at around 8.45.  We will return to school in time for afternoon lessons. A packed lunch will be provided.  Children should wear their normal school uniform – the site has proper paths throughout.  Pupils should also bring their outdoor school coat. Pupils may bring pocket money (£10 maximum) to buy souvenirs.

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.   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.

Please ensure if your child suffers from asthma or severe allergic reactions their inhaler/medication/epipen is with them. If they do not have them, they will be unable to go on the trip.

The cost for this trip will be £3.50 which will be added to your autumn term account.

Yours faithfully

Mrs R Jones
