Year 6 River Trip


Dear Parents/Carers


We are planning to take the Year 6 children to Gadebridge Park on Monday 9 September. We will be conducting some fieldwork by the River Gade as part of our Geography focus on rivers and the water cycle.

The children will be leaving school after morning registration and will be back by the end of the normal school day.


The children should come to school dressed in old clothing that is ok to get wet and muddy, with trousers that can be rolled up above the knee. They must bring in a warm coat/jacket if the weather is looking cold and bring in their wellies in a bag. We do expect that the children’s feet will get wet, despite wearing wellies, so please send a small old towel for drying off and a spare pair of dry socks.


The trip is free of charge; however, permission will still need to be given. This can be done via School Gateway.


The children will need a packed lunch on the day. However, they can bring their lunches in a rucksack as this will be easier to carry around all day. NO GLASS BOTTLES, CANS OR SWEETS PLEASE.

Those children in receipt of Free School Meals can be provided with a pre-ordered packed lunch on the day. Please state if one will be required when you give permission on School Gateway.



Yours sincerely
