Year 2 visit to see The Lion King

Dear Parents and Carers,

This term we have launched our new topic ‘Amazing Africa’. As part of this topic, we would like the children to experience a live theatre performance of ‘The Lion King’ at the Lyceum Theatre in the West End. Two classes will go on each day as listed below:

Puffin and Sycamore Class: Wednesday 16th March 2022

Daffodil and Squirrel Class: Wednesday 23rd March 2022

Children will need to wear full school uniform on the day and suitable/comfortable footwear e.g. trainers.

We will travel to the theatre by coach and will be leaving school at 12:15pm, with an estimated return time back at school between 7:00pm and 7:30pm. We will update the pickup time when we are on the journey back via text message.

Children should be dropped off at school at their normal times and should be collected from the usual gate at the collection time.

Children will be provided with a free school packed lunch, but they can bring their own if they prefer. If children do bring their own lunch, please ensure it is in a disposable lunch bag (a plastic bag is fine) and does not contain nuts, chocolate, sweets or fizzy drinks. Children are also permitted to bring an extra snack for the coach journey home. The children will be provided with drinks and some snacks on the coach to and from the performance and during the interval of the performance.

Earlier this academic year, we sent out a questionnaire regarding payments for the trip. We are asking for a contribution of a subsidised cost of £25, to cover the cost of the coach travel and the ticket for the show. If we do not receive enough contributions, unfortunately the trip will not be able to go ahead. We will also be able to accept payments in instalments if this is easier for you and your family. The instalments will be five payments of £5. The trip will be payable via Parent Mail. All payments must be received by Friday 11th March 2022. Please go to the payment section of ParentMail to give permission and make your payment. Please note that without permission, your child cannot take part.

Yours sincerely,

The Year 2 Team
