Year 4 Visit to Shakespeare’s Globe

The children are thoroughly enjoying our topic this half term and have produced some fantastic drama, artwork, music and written pieces based on ‘The Tempest’. Due to a new found love of Shakespeare, we know that they will love the trip we have planned for them!


On Wednesday 13th February 2019 the whole year group will be visiting ‘Shakespeare’s Globe’, in London, to take part in an organised workshop and tour of the theatre.


We will be travelling by train to Fenchurch Street Station and then will walk to ‘Shakespeare’s Globe’ along the South Bank, taking in the wonderful sights of London along the way. We will have lunch at the theatre, before our workshop and tour begins, and then walk back to Fenchurch Street.


We will be leaving school within normal school times (approximately 9.15am) and aim to arrive back at school by 4.00pm.  Your child will need to wear full school uniform, a warm coat and comfortable shoes (trainers will be allowed for this trip). They will need to bring a packed lunch and water bottle in a bag that they will be carrying all day.  If your child is entitled to free school meals and would like a packed lunch provided by the school, please indicate on the slip in the letter.


The cost of this trip is £13 which includes entrance to Shakepeare’s Globe and travel to and from London.  Payment for this trip should be made via the SIMs Agora on-line payment system.  If you have not set up an account yet, please see a member of the office staff who will provide you with an invitation code.  If you are unable to contribute financially, please inform your child’s teacher by letter as soon as possible.


When organising school activities that will enrich the curriculum experience of the children, the school invites parents to contribute towards the cost. All contributions are voluntary, however if we do not receive sufficient contributions, we will have to cancel this visit.


Due to the nature of this trip we would like to take additional adults therefore, if you are able to join us for the day, please indicate on the form in the letter and we will get back to you as soon as possible to let you know whether we have space for you.


I hope you agree that this will be a fantastic opportunity for the children and, as ever, we thank you for your continued support.


Please return reply slips to your child’s teacher no later than Friday 8th February 2019.
