YEAR 5 Science Trip:

Last term, year 5 were learning about forces as part of their Science topic. We have arranged a trip to the Science museum to consolidate this learning. We will have the opportunity to watch a dynamic show all about forces and magnets. This trip will take place on Monday 15th (Crimson and half of Emerald) and Tuesday 16th January (Sienna and half of Emerald). Your child will only attend one day. For this trip we are requesting the amount of £5.00. Please ensure that this payment is made by Parent Pay.


We thank you for your support and co-operation in helping us to further your child’s education.
