Trip to Science Museum Thursday 25th May 2023

We will be visiting the Science Museum as part of our Science topic: Digestion and Teeth in Term 5. The children will explore the museum with a focus on medicine and also engage in a 'It Takes Guts' workshop. 

Please can all children come in school uniform for the trip.

All children need to bring with them a packed lunch and water which they are prepared to carry with them (rucksacks preferable)!

If your child has a school lunch, please contact the kitchen via the usual channels to arrange this and we will collect them in the morning for the children. 

We will open the doors early at 8.30am and close them at 8.40am, so please ensure your child arrives on time in order to enable a speedy get away!

We will be aiming to return to school between 3.45-4pm and children can be collected from Oak office. 

Get in touch with your class teacher if you have any queries!

General Information 

Uniform  - Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled as it helps the children to identify their own belongings. Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months, and please also encourage your child to bring a named water bottle to school every day.

Medication - Please let the school and your child's class teacher know if your child has any condition requiring medication, including allergies or asthma. If your child needs to be on a course of medication then please complete the relevant form which is kept in the school office. 

Please speak to us at the door if you need to bring anything to our attention. If you have any concerns you wish to raise which are more personal or require more time than we can give in the mornings then please email or write a letter to your child's class teacher.


All of Year 4 will participate in PE on Tuesday mornings. Please send your child into school wearing their PE kit. Most PE sessions will take place outside, so please ensure your child has a sweatshirt and joggers. No other uniform will be required.
