EYFS Trip to Shrewsbury Museum
May 24 all-day

As part of this term’s topic ‘Long ago and far away’, we have arranged for EYFS to visit Shrewsbury Museum, and take part in a workshop titled “The Curious Tale of the Missing Mammoth”.

  • BADGERS trip will take place on Friday 24th May leaving school at 9:15am and returning at 11:45am
  • FOXES trip will take place on Friday 24th May leaving school at 12:45pm and returning at 3:15pm. Please note, FOXES class will be finishing school at a slightly later time that day. Please may we ask that you collect them from class at 3:20pm.

Please can we request that all children come to school that day wearing school uniform, instead of P.E kits.

The cost of the trip is £4.00 per child, payment of which should be paid by your child’s Arbor account prior to the date of the trip. Although costs for trips are voluntary, in reality the school has no other means of funding these trips. We hope everyone will contribute in some way.

Please note that this visit is covered by the Annual Consent Form for Trips/Visits and Medical Information. Please notify the school immediately if there are any changes to your contact/emergency contact details or medical information.

Year 3 Trip to Liverpool Museum & Walker Art Gallery
May 24 all-day

As part of this term’s History curriculum work on the Ancient Egyptians, we have arranged for Year 3 to visit Liverpool Museum and The Walker Art Gallery on Friday 24th May. During their time there the children will take part in an Ancient Egyptian workshop, learning about the mummification process.

We will be leaving school at 8.15am in order to get there at a reasonable time so ask that children arrive at 8.00am that morning. We will return at approximately 5:00pm. If we encounter any significant delay on our return journey, we will do our best to keep you informed.

Your child will need to bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink for this trip – no glass bottles or fizzy drinks please. Those pupils entitled to free school meals will be given a packed lunch by our school meals provider before departure. Please also ensure that they wear school uniform and have a lightweight coat with them. We will not be visiting the souvenir shop so no additional spending money is required.

The cost of the trip is £14.60, which includes entrance fees/workshops and transport.  Payment for this trip should be made via your child’s Arbor account prior to the date of the trip. Although costs for trips are voluntary, in reality the school has no other means of funding these trips. We hope that everyone can contribute to the trip in some way.

Please note that this visit is covered by the Annual Consent Form for Trips/visits & Medical Information. Please notify the school immediately if there are any changes to your contact/emergency contact details or medical information.

Year 6 Residential Trip
Jun 3 – Jun 5 all-day

kit list 2024

We are very excited to announce that we have organised a residential trip for our Year 6 pupils for June 2024 at The Pioneer Centre, Cleobury Mortimer.  Children will leave school on the morning of Monday 3rd June (the first day after the May half term break) and return in time for normal end of day collection time on Wednesday 5th June.

We are great advocates of the benefits a residential trip can give to those pupils who attend. These include:

  • team building skills, co-operation and respect (through a series of safe but challenging activities);
  • developing greater independence;
  • learning new skills and taking part in new and enriching experiences;
  • discovering more about themselves and their capabilities and becoming more motivated as individuals; and
  • (last but not least) having fun!

The Pioneer Centre is a relatively new purpose-built activity venue, with excellent modern facilities, designed to meet the diverse needs of both staff and children alike, and we have stayed there on a number of occasions now. Each occasion has been very successful and, as such, we plan to take our Year 6 pupils there again in the Summer term.

The centre provides a “home from home” atmosphere and offers a wide range of exciting activities, with experienced and qualified staff on hand at all times. To find out more about the Centre’s facilities and to see a plan of the site, please visit their website at https://activity-centres.naycacuk.co.uk/pioneer-centre/

The cost of the excursion is £230.00 per child, including transport, food, accommodation, supervised activities and equipment. We recognise that this is a large sum of money so have broken it down into four instalments of £57.50. We would be grateful if you could pay the first instalment by 29th February, sooner if possible, and the remainder of the trip balance by Monday 20th May. Of course, if you wish to pay this sooner that would also be appreciated.

If you are worried about making full payment by the given deadline, please do come and talk to me or contact the office: we can extend the payment schedule to give you more time to cover the cost.

If your child is worried about any aspect of the residential trip, please do not worry as class teachers have plenty of time to prepare the children.

An information evening for parents and Year 6 pupils will take place nearer to the trip to go over the finer details and address any outstanding queries you or your child may have.

This trip will be an amazing, once in a life-time, experience for our pupils and we hope very much that all our Year 6 pupils will attend. If, however, your child WILL NOT be attending the trip, please do let the class teacher know as soon as possible.

Whales trip to Hindu Temple
Jun 4 @ 8:00 am – 12:30 pm

Year 4 Trip to Hindu Temple, West Bromwich

Dear Parents/Carers,

As part of the school’s programme of teaching pupils about different places of worship, we have arranged for Year 4 to visit the Shree Krishna Mandir, a Hindu Temple in West Bromwich, to learn about the Hindu faith.   Whales will be visiting the temple on Tuesday 4th June and Dolphins on Thursday 6th June. In order for us to arrive at the venue for 9.30am both classes will need to come in to school by 7.45am on the day of their trip. The coach will depart at 8.00am sharp.

As we will not be returning until the latter end of the school’s lunch break it is likely the school’s lunchtime servery will have ended. Children should therefore bring in a packed lunch for this trip. No glass bottles or fizzy drinks please. Pupils eligible for Free School Meals will be given a packed lunch on their return to school.

The cost for this trip is £15.30, which includes transport, insurance and a donation to Shree Krisha Mandir to cover their costs. Payment should be made via your child’s Arbor account prior to the date of the trip. Although costs for trips are voluntary, in reality the school has no other means of funding these trips. We hope that everyone can contribute to the trip in some way.

Please note that this visit is covered by the Annual Consent Form for Trips/visits & Medical Information. Please notify the school immediately if there are any changes to your contact/emergency contact details or medical information.

Year 2 Parent Lunch
Jun 4 @ 11:30 am – 12:00 pm

We would like to invite you to join your child for a complimentary school lunch at 11.30am on Tuesday 4th June so that you can participate in the dining hall experience and sample our school meals for yourselves. Maximum of two visitors per child please.

If you are able to join us for lunch, please let us know by completing the attached link by Thursday 23rd May so the kitchen can ensure sufficient meals are prepared.
