Year 5 children are kicking off their year with an exciting learning project ‘Off with her head’, which focuses on life in Tudor times. To enthuse the children and enhance the learning in the classroom, we have planned visits to Hampton Court Palace to participate in a Opening up the world workshop and visit the other Tudor parts of the Palace.
Classes will visit on the following dates:
Monday 12 October 2015: 5VB and 5RB
Tuesday 13 October 2015: 5P and 5V
We will travel on public transport and eat our lunch at the palace, so the children will require a packed lunch in a NAMED disposable bag. Please- no sweets, no fizzy drinks and drinks provided in plastic containers. Children who usually have a hot lunch will have a packed lunch provided by the school. Children will need to wear full school uniform and clothes appropriate for the weather. We plan to be back by the end of the school day.
We would be very grateful for any volunteers to accompany us on the bus and to support a small group of children as they walk through and examine the artefacts in the palace rooms. In order to cover the cost of entry fees and the workshop, we have to ask for a voluntary contribution of £8.00 please.
Letters have been distributed to parents/ carers; please complete and return the reply slip to your child’s class teacher by Friday 2 October 2015. A copy of the letter can be found on our website under ‘Virtual Office- Letters- Year 5’.
