School Photo Day 2nd May

Dear families

On Thursday 2nd May The School Photography Company will be in school to take the children’s individual school photographs for parents to purchase.  As suggested by our parents we have arranged for the photographs to be available before Eid-ul-Adha, for those families wishing to use the photos as lovely gifts.
Please can you inform the school office by the 30th April if you do not wish for your child/children to have their photograph taken.

If you would like younger siblings to be part of the family photo, bring them round to the junior hall at 8am or after school at 3.15pm.  All other children will have their photos taken throughout the school day as normal.

Y3 Trip to Matlock Farm Park

Dear Parent/Carer 

Over the course of Year 3, we will be studying the Peak District in Geography. To support the children with their understanding of what the Peak District has to offer, we will be going on an educational visit to Matlock Farm Park in Derbyshire.  

The visits will take place on: 

Wednesday 5th June for Year 3 Citrine and half of Zircon.  

Wednesday 12th June for Year 3 Tanzanite and the other half of Zircon. 

To get a full day at the farm, we aim to leave school at 8.55am, so please drop your child to school at 8:40am. We expect to return to school by 4.00pm. You will need to collect your child from the junior hall. If there are any delays, the school’s office team will contact you by 3.30pm. To ensure you can receive any updates on delays, please check your contact details are correct at the school’s main office.  

We are asking for £15.00 per child which covers the cost of the coach and entry to the farm. Please return payment in full and consent via the Arbor app.

If you have any concerns or questions about payment, please speak to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible so alternative arrangements can be made. If there are any difficulties with using the Arbor app for payment, then please see the school office.  

For this trip, children must wear full school uniform including sensible shoes/wellies. You will need to provide your child with a packed lunch and a bottle of water with their name written on it. If your child is in receipt of free school meals a packed lunch will be ordered for them.  

In the event of wet weather, we are asking that all children bring a weather-proof coat with their name written in it.  

If you have any other questions or queries about the trip, please talk to your child’s class teacher.  

In the meantime, why not visit Matlock Farm Park’s website at: https://matlockfarmpark.co.uk/  

with your child in preparation for the visit?  


Yours sincerely 


Year 3 team
