Hollowtrees Farm Trip and Puppet Theatre Show

Dear Parents/Carers,

Year 1 have planned a visit to Hollow Tree Farm in line with their current topic of plants and growing. This trip will take place on Monday 21st May for Giraffes and Elephants and Tuesday 22nd May for Lions. On both days we will be leaving school at 9.30am and will return by approx. 3.00pm.


For this visit your child will need to wear suitable school uniform clothes, including long trousers and their school jumper and sensible, comfortable footwear but NO SANDALS please. We will be outside for the visit so your child will need to be prepared for either wet weather or sunshine!


All children will require a packed lunch (NO GLASS BOTTLES OR FIZZY DRINKS PLEASE). If your child is entitled to Free School Meals and you would like us to provide a packed lunch, please indicate on the attached form.


We have also arranged a theatre puppet performance on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ to visit our school on the Thursday 10th May. This will link with our English topic and give a first-hand experience of a live performance of the traditional tale we are studying.


The cost of both events is £14.50 this covers the cost of transport and to and from the farm, the entry fee and a contribution towards the theatre show. This is a voluntary contribution, however please be aware that if we do not receive sufficient funds the trip and theatre may have to be cancelled. Please return this along with the attached consent form in a sealed named envelope to the school office or class teacher by Monday 10th May at the latest.


If you have any questions about the trip please feel free to come and speak to your child’s class teacher.

Thank you for your continued support.
