Year 5 Trip to PGL Winmarleigh Hall - September 2018

Update (Thursday 6th September):

 

Dear parents,

The day is nearly here and just wanted to let you know of final arrangements and remind you of points raised at the PGL meeting in the Summer Term.

Children need to arrive at school at normal time tomorrow wearing clothes suitable for outdoor activities and with all there luggage. We will departing from school at 10am. Anybody who wishes to come and wave their child off is welcome to do so. We understand if you are unable to or think that this is not best for your child.

If your child is on packed lunch they do not need to bring a packed lunch. Lunch will be provided on site to start off the adventure.

Please make sure that your children's items are all named clearly. Whilst we will endevour to ensure that items are not lost or mislaid it certainly helps for all item to be clearly labelled. It is likely that at some point during the weekend your children are going to get wet. Rain is forecast and the children will be having outdoor adventures. With this in mind please make sure that children have enough socks and be mindful that they may return with muddy items on Sunday. Please check the kit list to ensure that your child has appropriate outdoor clothing and clothing to change into indoors. The disco is on Saturday night - bring party clothes!

All medication or any additional information must be made available to school prior to the visit. No medication without consent can be administered.

A maximum of £5 spending money is suggested and the children are responsible for looking after their own money. There are limited items that the children can possibly buy at PGL and have one visit to the on-site shop over the weekend. The children may bring a small treat to share with their friends on Friday night.

Room allocation have been made and take clearly into account all aspects: information school has about your child, friendships and suitability to make sure that everybody has a good time.

We will be departing from Winmarleigh following lunch on Sunday and expect time of arrival back at school is 2pm. We will keep you updated throughout the weekend with texts and information as and when appropriate. The school website page is being updated with this information and internet/time allowing Mrs Daly will try her best to upload pictures over the visit time.

Mrs Ankers, Mrs Daly, Mrs Gradwell and Mrs Johnson are looking forward to the weekend. We will look after your children and take care of them ensuring that they have fun and are safe. If you have any queries please contact school.

Year 5 are going to Winmarleigh Friday 7th September until Sunday 9th September

 

We are pleased to be able to offer all year 5 children the opportunity to take part in a school trip to Winmarleigh Hall in Lancashire.

What’s it all about?

It’s about having fun while taking part in all sorts of adventurous activities designed to help your child learn and develop new skills and really shine as an individual and also as part of a team. 

For many children this may be their first experience of staying away from home without you. PGL staff and I will be on hand throughout to encourage, reassure and help, so that your child returns home even more confident and independent with a real sense of achievement.

We have chosen to book with PGL because not only do they offer excellent value but they also have a reassuring 60 years of experience organising trips for schools. Their extremely high standards ensure that your child will be in safe hands at all times.
