Dear Parents/Carers

Year 4 Forest Camp 2017

Thank you for the positive response concerning a possible Year 4 Camp.

Following our recent camp meeting, I would like to confirm our intention to provide a residential experience for our Year 4 pupils.

The camp will take place locally at Newquay Forest School and the dates for each class will be:-

4SN        –              Monday 26th June

4SS         –              Monday 3rd July

4ST         –              Tuesday 4th July

4BM       –              Monday 10th July

The total cost of the camp will be £60.00, with an initial deposit of £20.00 to be paid by Friday 28th April and the remaining balance to be paid by Friday 9th June on ParentPay under the service ‘Yr 4 Forest Camp’.  The camp will include a variety of fun and educational activities, travel, evening meal, an overnight stay, breakfast and lunch at the academy upon return.  All food is cooked on site and locally sourced where possible.  A covered seating area is provided for meals and there is also a dry area for wet weather activities if necessary.  The children and staff will be sleeping in hammocks overnight, and toilet facilities are available on the Forest School site.

Each class will be going on a separate day, having the site solely to themselves.  Each class will be accompanied by their Classteacher and 2 Learning Support staff, with the activities being run by the Forest School staff.  The Forest School site is extremely secure, with members of the Forest School staff on duty overnight.

If your child does not wish to take part in the Forest School Camp please ensure their classteacher is aware.  Pupils not attending Forest Camp will be expected to attend Newquay Junior Academy on these days as there is an alternative programme of outdoor learning activities for them to participate in, wearing their own clothes.

Year 4 staff at Newquay Junior Academy are very excited to be able to offer this exciting outdoor learning opportunity for our Year 4 pupils and hope that its success will enable the Year 4 Forest Camp to continue for the foreseeable future.

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely

Year 4 Team
