Y3 trip to Stibbington
20th November 2019
On Wednesday 20th November we hope to take the Year 3 children to Stibbington Educational Centre. The purpose of the trip will be to enrich our ‘Rivers’ topic. The aims of the day will be: To identify and locate rivers in the UK, including the River Nene. To observe and describe geographical features relating to rivers and how they erode, transport and deposit materials. To interpret maps and models and to use fieldwork techniques. To understand how human activity can affect and be affected by rivers and the associated hazards and risks.
We will leave at 9.15am and be back within normal school time. Please could the children bring a packed lunch with them. They will need to wear their normal school uniform but also need to bring a waterproof warm coat and wellies. It is quite an exposed area, so please ensure the children have plenty of layers & gloves/ hat & scarf if it’s cold.
In order for this visit/activity to take place, we ask you to make a contribution of £26.40, which will cover the cost of the coach travel and insurance and the day at the centre in two teaching groups. While a parental contribution is voluntary, in reality we have no alternative source of funding. As no funding exists to subsidise the Programme, activities can only take place if we receive sufficient contributions from parents and carers. If insufficient funds are received, then the activity may be cancelled and any monies already paid refunded.
However, if you feel you would welcome some financial help towards the cost of the visit, the school has a small amount of Pupil Premium Funding to support access for all pupils to Educational Enrichment Activities. Please speak to the Head teacher in confidence if you would like help.
Thank you for supporting us in our efforts to enrich our curriculum at Fenstanton and Hilton School so it is more “hands on”, interesting and exciting. We are looking forward to a very interesting programme.
