Year 1 Trip to London Zoo - The Living Nativity @

Thu, Dec. 14, 2017

Add this to my Calendar

For the last few years, Year 1 have visited the Living Nativity at London Zoo. The children have a really enjoyable day out and we have decided to book it again for Thursday 14th December 2017. The children will journey through the scenes of the Nativity, meet the Wise Men and Camels, hear Mary’s story at the stable, talk with the shepherds and meet Santa.


The coach will leave school at 9.00 a.m. and return by 4.00 p.m. Please could the children be in class by 8.40 a.m. for a prompt departure.


School uniform should be worn, together with sensible footwear and a warm waterproof coat.


The children will need a packed lunch, preferably in a plastic bag with a carton of drink, so that they do not have to carry their lunch boxes around all day.

If you wish to provide your child with their own packed lunch, please do not include nuts or fizzy drinks. If you would like the school to provide a Universal Free School Packed Lunch, this will need to be ordered in advance by Friday 1st December at the latest. Please provide your child with a named plastic bag for the packed lunch. The packed lunch choice for the trip is as follows:

Cheese or ham baguette, cucumber / carrot sticks, apple / orange slices, shortbread and orange juice.


As always parents are responsible for making sure that inhalers are carried by the children. If your child has an Epi-pen this will be carried by the teacher in charge. Please also remember that it is the responsibility of parents/carers to inform us in writing if their child experiences a medical condition which school staff should be aware of.


The cost of the trip is £19.00 which covers the cost of transport, admission to the Zoo, the Living Nativity Trail and a gift from Santa! Should you find the cost prohibitive, please speak to me in confidence and I will do my best to help. No child will be excluded because of the cost.

Payment and permission can be given via the online ParentPay facility. However, if you are unable to access this facility, please complete and return the reply slip by Friday 1st December. Thank you
