Kentwell Hall Trip – Year 5

Dear Parents/Carers


We are writing to inform you about an exciting trip we have organised for year 5 next term, in connection with our History Topic on the Tudors. We have booked a re-creation day at Kentwell Hall on Thursday 14th June. We will step back in time and meet all sorts of Tudor characters, dressed in costume, working and talking as they did in the 16th century.


Participation in costume adds greatly to the experience so we request that all children come dressed in a Tudor costume. Overleaf are some simple patterns, which may be helpful to you in finding or making an outfit. Remember, the clothes are for a simple peasant, so please don’t hire or make anything too grand which your child may be worried about getting dirty or torn. Please see your child’s class teacher if you have any difficulties with this.


We will leave school at 9:00am and return by approximately 4:30pm. Your child will require a packed lunch, drink (NO GLASS BOTTLES OR FIZZY DRINKS PLEASE), and a snack. If your child is entitled to Free School Meals please indicate on the attached form if you would like us to provide a school packed lunch. As we are due to arrive back later than usual, please indicate on the slip below whether your child has permission to walk home alone. If we do not have a permission slip, your child will not be allowed to leave school without an adult.


The cost per child is a voluntary contribution of £20.00, which covers coach travel and admission. Please return the attached consent form along with this amount by 1st June. This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience history ‘hands on’ and, we feel, well worth the cost. You can pay the balance in two instalments of £10, with the first payment due by Friday 18th May and then the remainder by 1st June, or you may decide to pay the total cost altogether.


Thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely


Miss Dobner and Mr Hayward
