Dear Parents/Carers of year 6,
On Friday 2nd July Year 6 children will be going on an action packed school trip to Moorhouse Activity Centre. On the day of the trip children must be in school no later than 8.30 a.m., (bus will leave at 8.45 a.m. prompt) and they will return to school at a much later time of 6.30 p.m. If you child attends breakfast club they will go to their class at 8.30 a.m. Children not attending breakfast club must only come to school at 8.30 a.m. and go straight to their class for registration.
Children do not need to wear their school uniform and do not need a change of clothes BUT they must not wear ‘crop tops’ or ‘shorts that are too short’, due to the harness they will wear for some of the activities. Depending on the weather, it is advised that all children will need a waterproof coat and trainers that you don’t mind getting dirty (Just to clarify, they can come wearing these, they do not need to be additional trainers). If it is a sunny day children should bring sun hats/caps and sun cream. If children need to bring their mobile phones these must be turned off and given to their teacher, they should not carry them and must not take any photos. Children found to do this risk being excluded from the sleepover the following week.
During the day the children will be split into five activity groups and in turn they will participate in rifle shooting; abseiling; tree climbing; zip wire; team challenges and the day will end with a camp fire. All children will be encouraged to take part, but if they really don’t want to, they will not be made to participate in activities they are worried about. After all, the aim of the day is fun.
Please complete this Microsoft form by Friday 18th June ONLY IF you need to order school packed lunches for the day. Otherwise children will need to bring TWO packed lunches, or enough food for two meals. ALL children must have an additional drink. There are water filling stations available so children can use this at anytime they need to re-fill them.
The cost of the trip is covered by the £25pp families have paid to cover all end of year trips. Children do not need any money on the day.
