Year 4 Trip to Southend Central Museum

Re:  Year 4 Trip to Southend Central Museum


This term Year 4 will be studying the Romans and their impact on life in Britain, and a trip to Southend Central Museum will provide an exciting way to deepen their understanding of this era.


The session, led by museum staff, will explore what life was like in Roman times, using a range of original artefacts, with many having been found locally. They will also learn about the archaeological process of discovering and interpreting information from the past. During their time at the museum, the children will also be able to explore the other exhibits and learn about how the local area has changed over time since the Romans.


Class 4SB and 4JT will be going on Friday 4th May 2018 at 9:00am by train and returning at approximately 2pm.


Class 4AH and 4TF will be going on Wednesday 9th May 2018 at 9:00am by train and returning at approximately 2pm.


All children will be required to bring a healthy snack, drink of water and a packed lunch.

When organising school activities which will enrich the curriculum experience of the children, the school invites parents to contribute towards the cost. The cost of this trip is £6.00, including the cost of train travel.  Payment should be made on-line through SIMs Agora.  If you have not yet registered on the system, please contact a member of the office staff who will provide you with an up to date reference number.  All contributions are voluntary, and unfortunately if we do not receive sufficient contributions, we will have to cancel this visit.
