Year 5 Egyptian Workshop and Woburn Safari Park Trip
We have two exciting events planned for Year 5!
On Thursday 30th April we will be joined by a team from https://www.portalstothepast.co.uk/ who will be leading an Egyptian Workshop, taking us into our brand new summer topic for 2020!
This fun, absorbing and interactive workshop introduces children to the fascinating and enigmatic world of the ancient Egyptians. Children participate in activities throughout the day as they learn about what happens following the death of a mighty Pharaoh, including tomb building, the mummification process, burial ceremonies and, finally, the crowning of the new Pharaoh.
We would love the children to come dressed up for the day (suggestions on costumes to follow) for what we feel will be a fantastic way to learn about the past.
End of year trip to Woburn Safari Park
On Friday 5th June we are going to visit Woburn Safari Park for our end of year trip. We will spend a full day at the park and will have the added bonus of watching a Sea lion show and an outdoor classroom session with the giraffes!
In order for these events to take place we are asking for a voluntary contribution of £23.00 per child:
Eqyptian Workshop – £5.00
Woburn Safari Park – £18.00
Total to pay – £23.00
This payment will be set up as one activity on your Scopay account. A deposit of £10 is to be paid by Friday 14th February and the full amount by 22nd April. As the school has to pay the full cost of the trip in advance, we cannot give refunds if your child is off sick.
Please note that no child will be excluded from any such activity on the basis of cost. However, we are sure you will appreciate that we will not be able to go ahead if there is substantial lack of financial support for individual children.
Please submit this form to give consent for your child to participate in these experiences and please make this payment via www.scopay.com. Cash and cheque payments will not be accepted.
In order for the Woburn trip to take place, we would really appreciate the support of some parent helpers to accompany us during the day. Therefore, if you would be interested in joining Year 5 for our trip on the 5th June, please let Mrs Chamberlain or Mrs Rider know as soon as possible via Class Dojo.
