Latitude Festival KS2 Trip 01.07.15



1st July, 2015



Dear Parents,


Sycamore Tree and Chestnut Tree Class visit to Latitude.


Earlier this year Mrs Doherty contacted parents and explained that Sycamore and Chestnut Classes had an opportunity to visit a specially arranged schools’ day at the Latitude Festival. Parents were consulted on whether they would be prepared to pay more than the usual amount for a school trip for such a great opportunity. The response from parents was overwhelmingly positive.


We are delighted to have now finalised arrangements for the trip. This will take place on  Friday 17th July. We will be leaving school for the site at at Henham Park, Southwold just after registration and be leaving the festival at 5.00 p.m., hopefully arriving back between 6.00 and 6.30 p.m.  Nearer the time we will be sending home a telephone tree so that you do not have to sit at school and wait for us.


At Latitude,  we will spend the day in a special schools area and will take part in a range of activities including science, art and theatre.


School uniform does not need to be worn but please make sure they have their school sweatshirt with them.  Clothing must be suitable, dependent on the weather as does footwear.  If it is wet, please make sure they have a rain coat with them and sturdy shoes.  If sunny and hot they will need a sun hat and please apply sun cream to them before they come to school.


They will require a packed lunch, drink and a snack to have before we return back to school.  They will have to carry their bag with them all day so please remember this when packing drinks etc.  If your child/children is entitled to free school meals or if you would like school to provide a packed lunch at a cost of £2.10,  please request this on the permission slip overleaf.


The school packed lunch will consist of:-


Cheese, Ham or Tuna Roll, Vegetable Medley Bag, Fresh Fruit and a piece of cake with Fruit Cuplet.


If your child has asthma  they must bring their inhaler with them on the day  and if they suffer from travel sickness, please make sure they have a travel sickness tablet that morning and send one in to school  for them to have for their return journey.  (You will need to fill in a medication form from school for this nearer the time).


The cost of the day is £25.70. This is a voluntary contribution but if we do not get enough payments to cover the cost, this may prevent further school trips for being able to take place.  Cheques should be made payable to Suffolk County Council.



Yours sincerely,





Mrs. Sharpe and Mrs. Penistone

Class Teachers
