Year 1 Trip to Hogshaw Farm

June 21 @ 08:40 - 15:10

We are excited to inform you that a visit to Hogshaw Farm has been scheduled for Year 1 children on Friday 21st June 2024.

This visit has been planned to enhance our learning of animals in their habitats, as part of our science lessons during the summer term. The children will get the chance to observe a wide variety of animals up close, including sheep, pigs, lynx and birds of prey. This visit promises to be an exciting and educational experience for the children and we cannot wait to see the joy on their faces as they explore the wonders of the animals at the farm.

The departure from school will be at 9:10am, and we aim to return by 3.00pm, travelling both ways by coach.

To cover the cost of the trip, we are asking for a voluntary contribution of £17 per child, in line with the Governors charging policy, which includes coach travel and entry to the park for the day.

Please give your permission and make your payment via your ParentMail account by Monday 27th May 2024 at the latest.  Please go to ‘Payments’ and then select ‘Shop’ at the bottom of the screen. There is an option to pay in four instalments if this is easier for you.

It is important to note that no child will be excluded due to inability or unwillingness to pay. However, if the contributions received are not enough to cover the cost, the trip may be cancelled.

All children will require a disposable packed lunch and disposable water bottle.

If you have ordered any of the school dinner menu selections on Parentpay for Friday 21st June, your child will automatically be provided with a cheese roll packed lunch to take with them.  If you would prefer your child to bring a packed lunch from home on this day, please cancel your selection.

If you have not ordered a school meal for this day, please send in a packed lunch from home, including a drink (no glass bottles, sweets or chocolates) in a named carrier bag, which will all be thrown away after lunch.

On the day of the visit, your child must be in full school uniform with trainers/comfortable shoesPlease apply sun cream before school and ensure that your child has a named sun hat. 

Children will not need any spending money.
