Reception – Visit to Allotment and Picnic – Monday 22 May 2017


We are planning to take Reception to the school allotment for a picnic on Monday 22 May 2017.  The visit links to our curriculum topic of mini-beasts and gardens.  We then plan to extend our learning when we work on developing our outdoor area during the second half of the summer term. 


We will be leaving school at 10.45am and returning by 1.30pm. 


Lunch and Water Bottles

All children will require a packed lunch.  If your child normally has a school meal and would like a school packed lunch to be provided please complete and return the reply slip below by Friday 19 May (no cost as entitled to lunch under Universal Free School Meal Scheme).  Please also ensure that your child has a refillable water bottle to take on the visit. 


Clothing and Footwear

The children should wear their normal school uniform and footwear suitable for walking to and from the allotment.  Coats/sun hats will be required depending on the weather.  If it is sunny please make sure your child has sun cream applied before coming to school.


Wet weather plans

If we can’t make the visit due to poor weather we’ll have our picnic lunch in school!


If you would like your child to have a school packed lunch please complete and return the reply slip on the attached letter by Friday 19 May 2017. 


You only need to return the reply slip if you require a school lunch to be supplied.
