Dear Parents/ Carers
RE: Y5 Residential 2017-18 (25th - 26th June 2018)
We are delighted to inform you of our plans for the Year 5 residential trip to Gilwell Park, which will be taking place in June 2018. Residential courses organised by the school are an optional, but invaluable, part of the National Curriculum. Pupils benefit hugely from the experience, both educationally and socially, and I feel certain that this opportunity will prove to be invaluable as your child prepares for Year 6 in September.
The trip will take place from Monday 25th to Tuesday 26th June 2018. We will travel to and from Gilwell Park by train and stay in group accommodation. The cost of the visit will be approximately £ 55.00. There are 47 places available on a first come first served basis. A £25 non-refundable deposit will secure your child’s place. Please make payment via Parentpay. The final cost will be confirmed nearer the time.
Below are the aims of the visit and an idea of the agenda:
§ To develop collaborative learning skills through team work.
§ To develop important life skills such as managing daily routines independently, preparing meals, decision making and responsibility.
§ To develop geographical knowledge and understanding.
Monday 25th June 2018:
- Leave school; arrive at Gilwell Park by mid morning.
- Pupils to bring packed lunch.
- Leave bags at the lodge.
- Have orientation walk of the Park.
- Group activities.
- Dinner and team building activities at the lodge.
- Breakfast and pack up (leave belongings at lodge).
- Final activity.
- Leave Gilwell Park.
- Arrive at school.
