Year 6 Visit to Mount Cook Adventure Centre

Dear Parent/Guardian,

 

We have the opportunity to take our Year 6 children to Mount Cook Adventure Centre in Matlock, Derbyshire.  Mount Cook Adventure Centre are experienced providers of outdoor education and adventure that offer exciting activities.  School staff will be escorting the children throughout the trip.  Please have a look at their website http://www.mountcook.org/  and see all the exciting activities they have to offer.

                              

When? Costs?

We would like to offer this opportunity to all pupils in Year 6.  The trip will take place on

Friday 3rd March 2023.  The children will be leaving school at 7.30am and returning at 6.00pm.  Children will need to be collected by a parent/guardian on arrival.

The actual cost of the visit is £30.00 per child.  This is to cover the cost of travel and activities on the day. However the school will subsidise half of the expenses and we are asking you to pay £15.00 towards the cost of the trip. If your child is Free School Meals, they do not have to pay for the trip as the cost will be funded by the school. If you are unsure, please ask the office.

What will they do? What will they learn?

There will be a variety of activities that will be available to the pupils including: Archery Tag, zip wire, land Karts and team building activities.

Such activities are a valuable part of the National Curriculum.  Children benefit enormously from the experience, both educationally and socially and I feel certain that this experience we have chosen will prove to be both enjoyable and very worthwhile. 

Key Learning Objectives: Children will learn:

  • Leadership skills
  • Teamwork skills
  • Developing their independence and self-confidence
  • Developing their resilience and perseverance

 All of these skills will help them to be more successful as they face the challenges of secondary     school next academic year.

 

At this stage, we would like to get an expression of interest only.  If parents are unwilling or unable to contribute it is unlikely the visit will take place.

 

Please complete the permission slip below and return to school by Thursday 1st December 2022.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Mrs Sidat-Motala 

Assistant Head
