Year 5 Manchester trip

Dear Parents,

This year’s class trip for Year 5 is to the Science & Industry Museum in Manchester where the children will partake in four interactive workshops:

Workshop 1: Circuit City (10:30am)

Workshop 2: Forces and Flight (11:30am)

Workshop 3: The Wonder of Light (1:15pm)

Workshop 4: Explosions (2:00pm)

We have also booked:

Electricity: Spark of Life Trail (3:00 pm)

Activity Zone (3:30pm)

Cost per pupil:

We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £30.00.

  • £3:50 per workshop  (Total £14)
  • Travel £16

Unfortunately, the cost of the transport for Year 5 is quite high because it is spread between a small number of pupils. The workshops allow the children to experience some science that we can’t deliver at school.

Date: Friday 26th April  

Times: We aim to set off from school at 8:00am (meet in Year 5 classroom for registration) and return to the Settlebeck Bus Park at 6:00pm. Please be on time to pick up your child.

Your child will need to come in their uniform. Depending on the weather they may need a waterproof coat. They will need a packed lunch, a snack for later and plenty to drink, no fizzy drinks or glass bottles, in a small rucksack.

If you have any queries about the trip or the cost of the trip, please do come in to school for a chat.

Yours sincerely,



I give permission for my child ____________________________ (name) to attend the Manchester trip on Friday 26th April.  I understand that I must have my child in school by 8am and collect them at 6pm from Settlebeck Bus Park.

I enclose a deposit of __________ (suggested £5.00) or you wish to pay the full amount.

Signed: ________________________________________________________
