Year 5 Harry Potter trip- Friday 24th September

Please find further information and details here:

Dear Parents, 

We are so excited about our first Expedition trip as year 5 on Friday 24th September to HARRY POTTER STUDIO TOUR (LONDON) 

We would just like to remind you of the following:

The coaches will leave school at 7.30am – please arrive at your classroom by 7am.

The coaches will return to school at approximately 7:30pm (we will keep you informed via text).

Please take into account the length of the day we will be out when packing lunches. Children will require extra food in their packed lunch – eg. Cereal bar in the morning, normal packed lunch and a snack/tea prior to leaving the studio plus at least 3 drinks.  Pupils entitled to Free School Meals will be provided with a packed lunch from school but additional snacks will need to be provided from home.

Children need to wear their school jumper/cardigan and top, jogging bottoms / leggings and comfortable footwear.

Children MUST NOT bring a mobile phone on the visit but they are welcome to bring a camera (they will need to look after it themselves).  They may also bring a book or something to do on the coach that isn’t electronic.

Finally, if your child suffers from travel sickness, please ensure that they take their tablet before arriving at school and then bring one in a named envelope for the return journey and givethis to their class teacher. Parents will also be required to sign for this at the office too.

Yours sincerely

Miss Blackham

Booker Prize Event

Thank you to Mr Bubb, who kindly invited Plover to the official launch of the Booker Prize photography exhibit. This was a wonderful event, opened by Ed Milliband. If you are in the Frenchgate Centre, you can find the photographs by the entrance to the bus stateroom, as well as upstairs near the food court. Well done to all children who were selected to have their photograph taken based on their entry! #LovePlover
