We are raring to go on our London trip on 6th and 7th June!
We will hold an information meeting nearer the time where we will give you the full details, but if you have any questions in the meantime please pop in to see me or make an appointment where I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.
To give us the maximum time for all the activities we will meet at school at 5:30am to get packed up and medications handed over to the first-aiders so the coach can now leave at 6am on Thursday 6th June. The coach will return at approximately 10pm on Friday 7th June, depending on the traffic.
Due to GDPR regulations, no mobile phones/iPads/cameras will be allowed, but we will keep in touch throughout the two days through the school text-messaging service and I will post photos on Twitter for those with permission. After the trip we will arrange an evening after school where you will be invited to come and see a slideshow of all the photographs taken throughout the visit.
I am leading the visit and will be joined by five other members of staff: Mrs Elliott, Acting Deputy Head & Y6 teacher, and Mr Piper will be accompanying us. Mrs Gardner, Mrs Jasper and Miss Matthews are all fully qualified first-aiders and will also be on the trip.
The coach will leave school at 6:00 am on Thursday 6th June and will take us directly to the Warner Bros Studio to enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of the sets and props used in the film version of the Harry Potter stories. Both classes will be studying Harry Potter during Guided Reading sessions in the summer term. We will then enjoy a 2-course evening meal at Pizza Express before heading to Wembley where we will have opportunities to take photographs outside of the stadium. We will then check-in to the hotel which is nearby. The children will be in multi-bed rooms which all have en-suite bathrooms.
On the Friday morning we will enjoy a tasty breakfast at the hotel then will head to the Natural History Museum in the heart of London. Here the children will learn about the evolution of animals for their science topic. From here we will travel to the London Eye where we will enjoy a stunning 360 degree panoramic view of London from the top of this magnificent wheel. This will help them to investigate how we affect the world as part of the ‘Big Cities’ topic.
During the journey home we will stop at a service station to have a McDonalds meal for tea then will arrive back at school at approximately 10pm on Friday 7th June, depending on the traffic.
The pupils who are not attending the visit to London will do interesting activities back at school.
I am happy to answer any questions you may have about this trip.
