Our trip is getting closer (8-11th July)...
Are you as excited as we are?
Should you have any last minute questions please contact the school office 01752 773909, who will be happy to help.
Nearer the time, we will be sending a luggage label home with the children to attach to their suitcase or luggage bag before they arrive at school. Children should bring one bag for clothes that they must be able to carry/pull themselves and take to their accomodation independently.
Friday 8th- Drop off at normal school time- take luggage bag to the hall to be met by some of our Barton Hall team. Children wear active sports wear and trainers for activities as soon as we arrive on site.
One small rucksac with a disposable bag containing their lunch (if not school dinners), a refillable drinks bottle, suncream and sunhat, small activities for the coach and their teddy (if needed for reassurance) should come with them into the classroom with their waterproof coat (whatever the weather- so we can check they have one or you have time to bring one in).
Go through the hall with your child to the Year 4 pathway, have a big hug and wish them a great adventure.
Children then go into their usual class for morning registration at the usual time and morning activities before we leave school.
Children will be returning to school for 2:45 on Monday 11th July and can be collected from the front of school and taken home before the rest of the school finishes. We don't advise that children attend after school club on this day as they will be very tired and wanting to share their adventures with you. It can be overwhelming for them seeing other children being collected by their grown-ups and havng big hugs with no one there to meet them.
Should there be any delays the school will send out a message to you ASAP.
Children attending the trip are able to stay at home as an 'authorised' absence on the morning of Tuesday 12th July, if they need to rest, but must be back in school ready to learn for the afternoon session by 12:15. You will be asked to choose if your child will be in on Tuesday morning at the usual time or brought into school between 12:00 and 12:15 ready to have lunch in school as activities and groups will be planned for the number of children planning to be in school on Tuesday.
Some of the action from previous Year 4 residentials...
We can't wait to find out what is in store for us tomorrow...
