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 History through the ages re-creation day at Kentwell Hall on Thursday 23rd May.  We will step back in time and meet all sorts of Historical characters, dressed in costume, working and talking as they did in the past. 


Participation in costume adds greatly to the experience so we request that all children come dressed in a Tudor peasant 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. 

Your child will also need to bring a cup or mug with a handle (plastic or metal if possible) which can be hung from their belt. There will be drinking fountains at various points throughout the day where children can help themselves to water.


We will leave school at 10:00am and return by approximately 5pm.  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 17th May.  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 3rd May and then the remainder by 17th May, or you may decide to pay the total cost altogether. 


Thank you for your continued support.


Yours sincerely




Mrs Walker, Mr Hayward & Mr Miles
