I am writing to inform you that it has been arranged for the Year 1 and 2 children from Barlow to join the Year 1, 5 and Year 6 children from Chapel Haddlesey on a trip to The Castle Museum in York on Tuesday 3rd March. This will complement their topic learning this term about ‘Britain: Then and Now’. The Castle Museum brings to life many periods of our history, you can find out more at
The total voluntary cost for this trip is £9.00 and has been set up as a payment item on ParentPay today. No child will be excluded from the visit for non-payment but the school needs to receive sufficient voluntary contributions to enable the trip to go ahead.

The bus will be leaving school at approximately 9.30am, so the children will need to be in school on time at 9.00am for registration. Mrs Lindley, Mrs Winder and Mr Marshall will be accompanying the children on the visit, along with Mrs Lane, Mrs Edenbrow from Barlow and a DBS checked volunteer.

Children should wear their school uniform, including sensible shoes and bring their coat. The children in Year 1, Year 2 and pupils who are in receipt of free school meals will be provided with a school packed lunch, which they have already selected from a range of sandwich options; they will also need to bring a bottle of water with them (named, if possible) as drinks are not provided. The children in Year 5 and 6 may order a packed lunch with the school office by Friday 14th February or bring their own packed lunch in a named, disposable bag. The children will be back in school by the end of the normal school day. If there are any delays to report, we will send a text to update you.

Yours sincerely

Mrs B Lane
Class 1 Teacher
