Y6 Dovedale Trip (14.10.21)

It is with great excitement, I would like to announce that our annual visit to Dovedale will be taking place this year!

Thursday 14th October 2021
Arrive to school at 7.45am

Collect from school at 4.30pm
(Hanford Close)

What do I wear?
(Walking boots or trainers with strong grip and ankle support)
Waterproof jacket: It will be windy and wet! (You must remain dry, once you become wet you will get colder throughout the day)
Warm clothes: Jumpers, woolly hat, waterproof gloves for grip
Backpack: To store lunch, drink and healthy snacks

Children should wear comfortable and sensible clothes suitable for hill/mountain walking.

What will I eat?
Children who normally have a school dinner, will be given a packed lunch from school. Children can bring additional snacks/water but this should not be excessive as children will be expected to carry their bags with them all day. Children who normally bring a packed lunch should bring a lunch to school as normal.

Rich in carbohydrates and protein so children have the energy to climb the mountain!

Can I take money?
There will be no need for money as there are no shops on site.
No money, no electronics or games.

What about the 12 children who are staying overnight?
*Pack a small overnight bag (Pyjamas/toothbrush/ toothpaste/ face towel and deodorant)
*Wear warm outdoor clothes and hiking boots on Wednesday. Make sure you bring your waterproof coat etc (as it states above).
*Thursday, you will need your hiking clothes ready.

*Dinner and breakfast will be provided.
*You will all make your own sandwiches in the morning with Mrs Hurt and Mrs Jones.

You will come to school as usual on Wednesday and leave after lunchtime.

Any question, please ask your teachers.
Thank you.
