Y5 visit to the National Space Centre

Dear Parents and Carers,

As part of our topic Space we are planning a visit to The National Space Centre in Leicester. This is a really exciting trip which we are sure all the children will thoroughly enjoy.  The children will be able to see an actual space ship, a space suit and watch a presentation about space in the planetarium.

The trip is on the following dates

Monday 23rd May – Maple & Kingfisher

Tuesday 24th May – Otter & Snapdragon

Children will need to arrive at school at 8 am on the day of their trip. Children will need to

  • bring a packed lunch in a carrier bag (Please do not send any nuts or food with nuts in, sweets, chocolate or fizzy drinks)
  • bring a disposable water bottle. 
  • wear full school uniform with comfortable shoes

The cost of the trip is £15 per child.  There is the opportunity to pay in £5 instalments.  Please go to the payment tab in ParentMail to give permission for your child to take part in this great trip and to pay for the trip.

Thank you for your continuing support
