Monday 24th - Friday 28th April 2023
This amazing trip will allow time for children to get outdoors in the fresh air, have quality time with their friends and will really impact on their health in every sense.
Chellington is a fantastic, small venue which only has space for one class at a time. It is surrounded by lots of countryside and in a quaint little village.
We have planned activities to enable the children to have fun, learn and finish this academic year bringing the whole class together.
Sleeping arrangements: bunk beds in dormitories for 4-8 pupils
Overnight Monday 24th April
Overnight Tuesday 25th April
Overnight Wednesday 26th April
Overnight Thursday 27th April
The children will leave St Matthew’s at 10am and travel by coach to Chellington.
Children will need to bring a packed lunch for the first day, the evening meal will be cooked for them and there will be plenty of fruit available for snacks.
In the evening there will be hot chocolate and a snack to have whilst either sitting around a campfire or watching a movie.
The children will sleep in bunk beds and there are between 4 and 8 people in a room. Teachers will allocate where the children will sleep.
Breakfast will be cereal and toast and the children will make their own packed lunch to have at Chellington before returning to school at 12.30pm.
Please send your child with a change of underwear plus two spare sets. Avoid sending your child with new or ‘good’ clothes as they may get spoiled.
Children should bring along a book to read and a suitable game to play. They may also like to bring along a favourite soft toy or teddy. Please do not send mobile phones, personal stereos or radios. Cameras and binoculars may be taken but are done so at your child’s own risk. We cannot accept responsibility for anything lost or damaged. Everything your child brings should be clearly labelled.
Remember, your child will have to carry everything they bring – there are no porters at The Chellington Centre!
