As part of our History work, year 3 have been studying the Stone Age and in the next half term will be studying the Iron Age. To enhance the children’s learning and understanding of these ancient times, we have organised an exciting trip to Butser Ancient Farm after February half term.
The trip for year 3 will take place on Monday 26th March 2018, within normal school hours. During this visit, the children will explore the remarkable open-air Stone Age museum and experience a range of hands-on activities throughout the day, including jewellery making, wattling and archaeology.
We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £10.50 per child to cover the cost of the visit, including the coach cost to Waterlooville and running of the activities by the staff at Butser Farm.
For the visit, the children must wear their school shirt and jumper however, they can wear bottoms of their choosing that will be appropriate for the activities and the weather. They will be outside for most of the day regardless of the weather. Please provide a labelled raincoat or jacket and a pair of sensible shoes for walking around the outdoor site.
If your child needs any medication, for example asthma inhalers, they will need to bring their medication to school (clearly labelled) to give to their teacher on the day if there isn’t one in school already. The children do not need to bring spending money as we will not be visiting the gift shop.
Please provide a healthy packed lunch, with a non-fizzy drink in a non-breakable container or carton. This will be stored at the farm until lunchtime, so a clearly labelled, small rucksack or disposable carrier bag would be the best option to put this in. Children who have free school dinners may order a packed lunch on the attached form, if they require one. They will also need to bring a drink with them.
