The new Year 5 team have been working very hard to plan many exciting opportunities to enhance the curriculum through the next academic year. This will begin with a trip to the Nuclear Races in Brentwood on Friday 20th September 2019. We have planned a fantastic day for the children that will allow them to develop skills of co-operation and perseverance, as well as having an amazing amount of fun! This trip will support our PHSE programme and the Physical Education curriculum.
We will be leaving school at 9.00am and will return in time for the normal end of the school day. Children will be required to bring a healthy snack and drink of water for when we arrive and a packed lunch. If your child is eligible for free school meals and would like to have a packed lunch provided by the school, please indicate by returning the reply slip on the letter.
We have been advised that participants should wear sports clothes and trainers and bring a complete change of clothes (including shoes). They will get wet and muddy, which – as you know – is part of what makes these days so enjoyable and fun, hence old clothes might also be a good idea! It would be helpful if children could also bring an empty black bag to put their wet clothes in. We will return them to you fed, dry (not necessarily clean!), exhausted but happy!
The cost of the trip is £22, which includes the cost of coach travel. When organising school activities which will enrich the curriculum experience of the children, the school invites parents to contribute towards the cost. All contributions are voluntary, and unfortunately if we do not receive sufficient contributions, we will have to cancel this visit. Our preferred payment method is the on-line SIMs Pay system. If you have forgotten your reference number or need assistance with the on line payment system, please see a member of the office staff.
The Nuclear Race organisers require an online registration form and disclaimer to be completed. Your child will not be allowed to take part unless this is filled in before race day. The form can be accessed at the following link: https://www.njuko.net/chalkwell19
If you are unable to contribute financially please inform your child’s teacher by letter. Please complete the slip below and return to your child’s teacher by Friday 13th September 2019.
