Year 6 Trip Update
Following my upsetting email earlier, I have managed to organise a 1 night trip leaving tomorrow returning Tuesday evening for those children due to attend JCA. Hopefully we will then have more information about JCA. We will also continue to look at other options for the rest of the week if JCA cannot go ahead.
The trip will be at Bentley Copse Activity Centre near Guildford in Surrey. The children will be staying in tents (4 to a tent) and will therefore need to bring a sleeping bag and pillow or a duvet and pillow as well as enough clothes to keep warm camping and being outside in the evening. They can also bring a torch with them and snacks. The children will only need an overnight bag (Rucksack with warm clothing, towel and toiletries as well as appropriate outdoor footwear). Any medication required should also be packed. The same rule applies that they should not bring any electronics.
They will have a BBQ in the evening and take part in the following activities:-
Wobbly pole climb
Pedal go karts
Rotating climbing wall
The activities are carried out by Instructors and are risk assessed. It is an established activity centre.
Unfortunately we cannot arrange a coach there at such short notice. We would ask that parents could get in contact with each other and provide transport there and back. We will confirm pick up times but it is likely to be in the evening on Tuesday. Please could you drop children there between 12 p.m. and 1.00 p.m. tomorrow. If you are unable to provide any transport, then please let us know and we will arrange a lift as long as you give permission for us to do so.
The address is as follows:-
Bentley Copse Activity Centre
Hound House Road
There will be no extra cost to parents for this and will be looking to use some of the JCA refund.
If your child doesn’t want to go, then they may stay in school. We would need to know as soon as possible if you would like your child to attend or if they will be staying in school. We will organise who will be in which tent tomorrow morning.
Please email Karen Marshman as soon as possible to let us know if your child will be attending. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
