Y5 Visit to National Space Centre

24 January 2019


Dear Year 5 Parents/Carers


RE: Space Centre visit


On Monday 4th March 2019, we will be visiting the National Space Centre in Leicester, as part of our Science topic on the Earth in space.  During the visit, we will be focusing on the similarities and differences between Earth and the other planets, to begin preparations for class presentations exploring whether one day we might be able to live on one of them.


On the day, your child will need to be at school at 7.45am so that they can be registered for a prompt departure at 8am.  We will be returning to school at about 5pm.  The children will need a packed lunch, will be required to wear full school uniform and can bring up to £5 to spend on a souvenir of the day.


Parent Helpers

We will require a small number of parents to accompany each class.  Please indicate on the slip attached if you are able to help. Please note that there are only a very limited number of places available.


To cover the costs of this visit, we are asking for a contribution of 19.50 per child. As with all activities of this kind, we can only ask for a voluntary contribution, but should insufficient funds be received, the event may have to be cancelled. We are now using sQuid (the secure online service) to enable parents/carers to make contributions towards all trips and visits. Please note that we no longer accept payment by cash or cheque. Please contact the school office if you have difficulty with this method of payment.


All payments must be made by11 February as we will need to make a decision on this date on whether we have sufficient funds for the trips to go ahead.



Thank you for your support.


Yours sincerely



Year 5 Team
