Yr 3/4 Kents Cavern
This event will take place between 9:00am and 3:00pm on 14/03/2018.
As part of the science topic ‘Rocks and Soil’ and our history topic ‘Old Stonehenge’ we have arranged for the children to visit a spectacular natural cave at Kents Cavern in Torquay on the South Devon coast. It is described as ‘One of the most special caves in the country. The incredible geology and rich archaeological heritage of the cave has been astounding scientists and visitors alike for centuries.’
The trip will consist of a tour around the magnificent caves and activities to enhance this experience by discovering how and when rocks and fossils were created. It will undoubtedly inspire the children and develop their understanding through the coming weeks of the topics.
We will leave school after normal registration and return at approximately 3.20 pm. The trip has been risk assessed in accordance with school policy. The children must wear their school jumper/cardigan with plain tracksuit bottoms, sensible shoes or trainers (not plimsolls) and a waterproof coat. A packed lunch will be needed for the day. If your child is entitled to free school meals, they will be provided with a healthy packed lunch. There is no need for cameras, mobile phones or spending money. We have a few spaces for voluntary helpers, so if you are able to help.
In order to cover the cost of the trip and for the children to take full advantage of this exciting opportunity a voluntary contribution of £10.00 per child is necessary. Please complete the SOE3 form and the slip with your contribution by Friday 2 March 2018 to be paid online via ParentPay.
