Dear Year 1 parents and carers,
RE: Year 1 – Trip to the Seaside (Joss Bay) – Monday 18th July 2022
As the landing for our current topic ‘City to Seaside’ all Year 1 classes will be visiting the seaside on Monday 18th July 2022.
We will be leaving at 8:30AM, so please ensure you arrive promptly, and we aim to return back to school for 4:30PM traffic permitting. If we are delayed for any reason, the school office will contact you via text message.
The children will be making comparisons about the physical and human features between the city and seaside. They will learn about how a visit to the seaside has changed through history. At the seaside, the children will play a few seaside games, explore the rockpools, build sandcastles and dip their feet in the water.
The cost of this trip is £15.00 per child, which will pay for the coach, and should be paid via PAY360 / TRIPS – Y1 Seaside. If you do not have access to the Internet or are experiencing difficulties in using PAY360, please speak to a member of our office staff who will be able to help you.
If you are able to volunteer as a helper for this trip, please indicate so on the form below. Please note that you will need to pay for your seat on the coach (£15). If we have too many parents that wish to attend, two weeks before the trip the class rep from each class will draw names from a hat.
You will need to provide a healthy packed lunch for your child which should NOT contain fizzy drinks, sweets/chocolate, or any nuts (due to pupil allergies), the packed lunch needs to be fully disposable and in a named carrier bag.
For children in receipt of free school meals or universal free school meals a school packed lunch may be provided upon request, please pre-order your child’s choice below via the form below by Friday 1th July at the latest!
Your child must have a waterproof coat, sunhat and appropriate shoes on this day, as we shall be going whatever the weather. If it is sunny, please apply sunscreen to your child before they come to school. Please also provide your child with a spare set of clothing. As always, your child will also need a filled water bottle.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Year 1 Team
