WHIPSNADE ZOO 27/06/2017

Our exciting trip to Whipsnade Zoo is fast approaching, so please see below for some reminders about what children will need with them on the day.


We will be leaving on Tuesday morning after registration and the early business of the day. We would be grateful if you do not wait to see us off, as the area will be very congested with the number of coaches we need, and we must ensure children get on board safely.


Children will need:

  • A small rucksack or similar bag, leaving hands free
  • A named water bottle
  • A packed lunch in a named disposable bag, rather than a lunch box. (Lunch will be provided for children receiving free school meals).


P.E. kit should be worn, especially purple t-shirts/sweatshirts for easy identification. Depending on the weather, children should have a waterproof outer jacket with them and trainers or shoes suitable for walking.


Please ensure that children are wearing sunscreen and that they have taken travel sickness medication if necessary. Any additional medication should be handed to the class teacher in a named bag/container.


We will return to school at approximately 5pm, depending on traffic. Please wait for your sons/daughters on the playground as normal. For safety reasons, children cannot be handed over until they are on site.
