Year 3 River Trip 16th, 17th and 18th July
16th July 2019Dear Parents/Carers
As part of our Geography unit this half term, year 3 will be taking part in a river field trip at Dell Quay in Fishbourne, part of Chichester Harbour. The workshops will allow children to understand the different features of a river system and how basic field study techniques can be used to investigate and record river features. This will support our topic ‘How different are the Amazon and the River Ems?’.
Lime class will be visiting Dell Quay on Tuesday 16th July
Elm class will be visiting Dell Quay on Wednesday 17th July
Maple class will be visiting Dell Quay on Thursday 18th July
The pupils will be transported to Dell Quay by minibuses. They will be leaving at 9.00 and will return by 3.20 approximately. Children will be expected to wear a school sweatshirt/cardigan and old shorts or old trousers. However, due to the nature of the trip, children will need to bring:
- a waterproof coat
- wellies (as long as possible)
- a plastic bag for sitting on
- a sunhat and sunscreen
A donation of £6.20 is required towards the transport and river workshop costs of this trip and if this should cause any problems please do not hesitate to contact the School Office. (Please make cheques payable to Mengham Junior School).
Please complete and return the attached permission slip with your donation, in a sealed envelope marked ‘Dell Quay’ to the School Office before Monday 1st July, thank you.
