Throughout each school year, there are opportunities where it is valuable to visit the local area to enhance the curriculum, particularly for Geography and History. It is essential that we have parental permission for these educational visits, alongside the risk assessments which school carries out before a trip.
As part of the Year 5 Geography topic this term, we are currently organising to take the children out and about around Wombwell. Our current topic focusses heavily on the similarities and differences between Wombwell and Whitby, allowing the children to compare the geographical features, heritage, economy, history and industry. We feel that by visiting Wombwell itself and following our scheduled day trip to Whitby, the children will be able to make these comparisons.
Due to the current weather conditions, it is not always possible to predict whether a trip out of school will be possible on certain dates and therefore this may have to be decided a couple of days in advance. It also means that scheduled dates may need to be cancelled if the weather is not suitable.
To avoid issuing the same letter each time, we are asking parents/carers to give permission for any local visit throughout this term. This means that if a visit has to be cancelled due to the weather etc, you will not be required to sign any further consent forms. As class teacher, I will notify you a couple of days in advance of intended walks around the area to ensure that children come to school in appropriate footwear and clothing.
A letter address to parents/carers regarding this is being sent out this afternoon. However, you can also download the permission slip by clicking on the file below.
