Shepreth Wildlife Park Trip - Emerald Zone

25th May 2018

We are excited to be organising our school trip to Shepreth Wildlife Park! On 25th May we will be enriching our ‘Dear Zoo’ topic, with a visit to a real zoo, where we can experience the features and environment of the animals we have been learning about. Shepreth not only has a range of wildlife to explore but also offers ‘out of the classroom’ hands on experiences, where children can handle creatures and learn about their ‘amazing adaptions’.

When:

Friday 25th April

We will leave school by coach at 9:15 and return to school at about 2.45pm.

What you will need

  • Normal school uniform
  • Strong outdoor shoes
  • Waterproof coat.

All of the items below should be packed in a rucksack please;

  • Sun hat
  • Packed Lunch (minimal litter please)
  • Water Bottle
  • Morning snack

Please be aware that hay fever sufferers may require their medication before coming to school. There may be mosquitoes if the weather is warm so insect repellent (if your child reacts badly to bites) will also need applying before school, as well sunscreen.

We will not be visiting the souvenir shop, so please don’t send your child with any money.

We are requesting a voluntary contribution of £12.25, this amount includes insurance, travel by coach, entry fee and a 40 minute education session including handling animals. Please pay online using SIMS Agora (preferred method). You will shortly receive an email to register with SIMS Agora if you haven’t previously. We would like all parents to use this online payment system to reduce cash in school, so please do register asap. As usual any trip may need to be cancelled if not enough contributions are received. If you think you might need or be entitled to some assistance with payment please ask at the school office beforehand.

As your children are entitled to the Universal Infant Free School Meal scheme and those who receive Free School Meals the school can provide your child with a packed lunch. You may prefer to provide your own which is absolutely fine however we do need to provide the kitchen with definite numbers in advance.

Please indicate below on the slip if you will require the schools packed lunch.

Please return the reply slip below to your child’s class teacher by Friday 11th May.

Thank you for supporting us in taking the children on an exciting and educational day out.
