Year 5 Trip to Think Tank, Birmingham

April 11, 2024 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

As part of this term’s Science curriculum work, we have arranged for Year 5 to visit Birmingham’s Think Tank Museum on Thursday 11th April. During their visit the children will take part in a “Forces and Friction” workshop, fitting in with the work they have been doing in the classroom this term.

We will be setting off from school a little earlier than usual. The coach will leave school at 8:50am prompt, so children need to arrive at school by 8.30am. We will leave Birmingham at 2:00pm, and expect to arrive back at school around 3.30pm, allowing for traffic. 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. The day will be packed with activities so there will be no time to visit the souvenir shop (so no spending money required).

The cost of the trip is £24.60, which includes transport, workshops and insurance.  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.
