It is great that we are able to start thinking about school trips again. We would really like to take Year 2 on a trip outside school before the end of the year. This is likely to be the end of June.

We believe that school trips are really important to enrich the children’s learning as well as provide opportunities to learn about the wider world. We have chosen Colchester Castle as the place we would like to visit as it links nicely with our current topic.

We planning the trip alongside the government guidelines and are in discussion with Colchester Castle regarding their Covid policy to safeguard the children. We are also talking to coach companies regarding their Covid policies as well. We will provide more information before the end of half term.

The PTFA are supporting us with some of the cost of this trip, but we are expecting it to still cost £7-8 per child.
