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 two interactive workshops:

Workshop 1: Space School

Workshop 2: Forces and Flight

We have also booked:  The Sun Trail and Activity Zone

Cost per pupil:

We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £25.00.

  • Museum workshops £8.00
  • Travel £17

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

There will be an opportunity for children to go on the simulator ride if they wish, however, this is an additional charge of £5.00 or £6.00.  We will also visit the Museum Shop.  If your child would like to go on the ride or buy something from the shop, they would need to bring some spending money with them, a maximum of £10.00.

Date: Monday 23rd March  

Times:  We aim to set off from school at approx. 8:00am (meet in Year 5 classroom for registration) and return to the Settlebeck Bus Park at 4.45pm. 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,

S R Cayley
