Year 4 visit to Stonehenge – Tuesday 27th June 2017
We are planning a visit to Stonehenge in Salisbury on Tuesday 27th June, for a day organised by English Heritage. (Please note that the year group will be going over two separate days, your child will go on the above date.)
The visit will incorporate many themes of core importance in the new National Curriculum, particularly for History. As part of the trip, we will be visiting the new Neolithic houses where pupils will be able to walk inside to see how people may have lived 4,500 years ago.
We will be leaving school at 9.00 am. In order to get the full benefits of the day, we will be leaving Stonehenge at approximately 2.00pm and anticipate arriving back at school at about 3.15pm depending on the traffic.
Children do not need to wear school uniform. Children should wear clothing and footwear that is suitable for a day out in the countryside. If the weather is warm please ensure pupils have sun cream on, sun hats plus plenty of drinking water. If it is wet please ensure they bring a waterproof coat.
The children will also need to bring a packed lunch with them. If your child is entitled to a free school meal, they will be provided with a packed lunch. We would recommend that your child has a rucksack with them for their lunch, drinks etc. Please note that children will not be visiting the gift shop so spending money is not necessary.
We ask for a contribution of £11.50 per child to cover the cost of this visit. You are welcome to pay by instalments if you wish, however, the total should be paid by Friday 23rd June 2017.
Please pay on-line or by cash/cheque (cheques made payable to Beechwood Junior School). If insufficient contributions are received, unfortunately, this visit may need to be cancelled.
Please complete the attached reply slip below and return to the school office together with your payment by Friday 23rd June 2017.
Many thanks for your continued support.
