Mon, Jun. 11, 2018

Add this to my Calendar

St Thomas More will be holding a Joint French Day with Garden City Academy on Monday 11th June. The event will take place at Garden City Academy (GCA) and there will be no cost to parents. Throughout the day the KS2 children from both schools will join together to take part in various activities linked to French language and culture.


Pupils will be leaving school at approximately 8.55am and returning by 3.00pm. The children will be travelling by minibus for one journey and walking the other, so that each child will only have to walk either to or from GCA.


In order to help the children enter into the spirit of the day, we would like them to dress up. They may choose to come as a famous French person, or simply wear red, white and blue clothing to school, preferably no football kits.

Please ensure your child has a waterproof coat and comfortable shoes as it is approximately half an hour’s walk to Garden City Academy and the children will all be walking one way whatever the weather. If the weather is hot, please ensure your child has a hat and sun cream applied before school.


Your child will need a packed lunch and a water bottle to be brought in a named disposable carrier bag. If your child is in receipt of free school meals, please indicate on the slip below if you would like a packed lunch provided by school.


One of the activities will be a French themed café. If your child has any food allergies or you do not wish your child to take part in the food tasting please complete the slip and inform your child’s class teacher.


We hope that the local press will be attending the event. Please indicate on the slip whether you are happy for your child to be photographed by the press. No names will be used against the pictures.

Please sign and return the permission slip by Monday 21st May.
