Year 4 Residential

12th September 2014

Robin Hood`s Bay Residential Trip – Wednesday 11th March to Friday 13th March 2015
Children in Year 4 have the opportunity to take part in their first school residential trip. This trip is one where we strongly encourage all children to take part. It is a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn about coastal habitats and also the geographical coastal features. The children will be able to study the area and contrast this with their study of Alverthorpe. Each year, the children who go on our residential trips really enjoy them. Most importantly there is much more to learn about building up confidence, staying away with friends and becoming more independent.
Due to the success of last year`s mid-week visit, we have provisionally booked ‘The Old School House’ at Robin Hood’s Bay from Wednesday 11th March to Friday 13th March 2015. The cost for the two nights including entry to the Sea Life Centre, Flamborough Lighthouse, along with additional activities including a Smugglers Story Night and a Fossil Hunt will be £90.00. In addition the children will be allowed to bring up to £10 spending money which they may want to spend at the Sea Life Centre or in Robin Hood’s Bay on memorabilia or pens etc. There will be at least six staff members (including myself) taking part and supervising the trip.
We do need to confirm our booking and so we are asking that you return the slip as soon as possible and send a non- refundable deposit of £30.00 by Wednesday 22nd October 2014. We will ask for full payment to be completed by Wednesday 21st January 2015. This will give us time to ensure all cheques are cleared before we go in March.
If you would like to start a savings plan now, please send money into the school office in a sealed envelope clearly marked with your child’s name and ‘Robin Hood`s Bay`. You will then be sent a savings card to keep track of any payments made.
* Please note the full amount can be paid at anytime.
