Year 3/4 Christchurch A & P Show Trip
Thursday 15 November
We will travel by bus to the Christchurch A & P Show on Thursday 15 November. The bus will leave English Park at 9.00am. Please ensure that your child is in their classroom by 8.40am so they can put their name tags on, go to the toilet and their teacher and parent helpers will check that they are present and ready for our trip. Children are not allowed to bring any money to the show. If your child is unwell and will not be at school, please ring the office before 8.30 and leave a message.
All children will be assigned to a group and will move around the show with an adult. The children will have their teacher’s mobile phone number written on their arm. We will focus on the animal and farm machinery sections and no children will be taken to the side show area.
We will meet as a team on the Family Lawn for lunch and a roll check at 12.00 noon.
We will leave the show at 2pm as the traffic is likely to be congested.
To ensure that your child has a safe and memorable day at the show, can you please ensure that they have the following items with them, packed into a sturdy school back pack with straps adjusted correctly.
• • Wear school uniform
• • Running shoes and socks
• • School hat
• • Apply sunscreen before school and bring sunscreen to show
• • Large lunch
• • Full water bottle
• • Warm jacket
You may like to include a small bottle of hand sanitiser for children to use. We will take children to the toilet in groups and will ensure their hands are washed before eating lunch.
We are all looking forward to this exciting trip.
Please ask your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
