Reception trip to Kingston Maurward – 12 July 2016

Posted:

Our Reception children are looking forward to their trip on Tuesday to Kingston Maurward, Dorchester.  They will have the opportunity of seeing different animals and how to care for them.

They will leave school at 9.15 am and will be back by 3.15 pm.  They will need to wear a school jumper/cardigan but can wear rough trousers and shoes.  Dependant on weather, please ensure your child has a raincoat or sun hat and sun cream applied before coming to school.  They will receive a packed lunch.

I hope they have a lovely time and the weather is good for them.
