25th September 2023


Year 1: Local Walk


Dear Parent/Carer,



In Year 1 this half term the children are looking at the question ‘Where do we live?’


To support their learning, we are planning a local walk for the children in order for them to carry out geography fieldwork around the school grounds and surrounding area. The children will be using their senses to observe and understand their local area. This will include Bramford Lane and Ulster Avenue. The walk will take place on Wednesday 4th October and will last for approximately 45 minutes.


Lions - 9:30am- 10:15am

Giraffes- 10:45am – 11:30am

Elephants- 1:15pm- 2:30pm


Could we please ask that you send your child to school in suitable footwear, such as comfortable flat shoes or trainers and if it is raining, please provide a jacket/coat.   Please also ensure they have their water bottle with them in school.


We know this will be a good experience for the children and an important opportunity for them to carry out their geography fieldwork.  We do not need a signed permission slip for this trip as it is covered by our local visit permission.  If you have any further questions about the trip, please speak to your child’s teacher.



With regards




Mrs Bartholomew, Mrs Edwards, Miss Bias and Miss Starling
