Whales Animal Habitats and Pond Dipping Trip, Shropshire Wildlife Trust

As part of this term’s science curriculum work, we have arranged for Year 4 to take part in an “Animals and their Habitats” workshop at Shropshire Wildlife Trust’s site in Abbey Foregate. During their visit, pupils will also do some pond dipping to discover the variety of creatures that live in that environment. Dolphins trip will take place on Thursday 11th July; and Whales on Friday 12th July.

Each class will set off shortly after morning registration and return to school around 2.15-2.30pm, so should be collected as normal at the end of the school day.

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. We ask that children come into school dressed in their PE kit and bring with them a lightweight waterproof coat and a pair of wellingtons. If the weather forecast is predicted to be hot/sunny,  please ensure that they als bring a sun hat for protection. An application of sun lotion before coming into school is advised.

The cost of the trip is £8.40, which includes the cost of both activities. 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.
