01-12-2022 - Year 4 Colchester Synagogue Visit

1st December 2022

Year 4 – Colchester Synagogue Visit


Dear Parents/Carers,


We are writing to inform you about an exciting trip we have organised for our Year 4 children in connection with their curriculum study of the Jewish faith. If your child is in Squirrels then they will be going on Tuesday 10th January 2023, if your child is in Foxes they will be going on Wednesday 11th January 2023 and if your child is in Hedgehogs they will be going on Thursday 12th January 2023.


It will be a wonderful chance for the children to take part in a tour of the Jewish Synagogue and to taste challah (sabbath bread) and apples with honey (a new year tradition) - just so you are aware if there are children with allergies (the bread is made with egg).   


We will leave school at 9.15am and return just after midday. Your child will require a packed lunch and a 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.


The cost per child is a voluntary contribution of £5.00 which covers coach travel and admission.


The trip has been placed on Arbor so you can give consent for the trip, order a packed lunch and pay the £5.00 cost. If you do not yet have access please speak to a member of the office team.


Alternatively, please return the enclosed form to the school along with payment in a named envelope.


Thank you for your continued support.


With regards



Mrs S Gooch, Miss V Jaspal and Miss S Waters

Year 4 Teachers
