Year 1 are very excited to be going on a visit to a working farm in our local area. The children will get to experience the day to day running of a farm that grows crops, find out about parts of the plants as well as exploring some of the machinery used to collect the crops.
The visit is on Thursday 10th May and will be within school hours. We will be leaving school at 9.15am and will return by 1.15pm
Please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for the weather that day. Sensible shoes or wellies (if wet) are advisable as it is a working farm; a waterproof coat is essential. Children should wear their school jumpers or cardigans but may wear practical trousers that are comfortable.
You are not obliged to make a contribution towards the day visit and pupils will not be excluded through inability or unwillingness to pay. However, the visit can only go ahead if there are sufficient contributions to cover the costs. You are, therefore, invited to make a voluntary contribution of £2.60 per child which covers the cost of the coach.
To ensure the school complies fully with the policy approved by the governing body, and meets Insurance and Health and Safety regulations, the following rule applies: where paperwork is not received in advance of a school trip your child will not be allowed to participate.
