Year 6 Hawkhirst parent meeting

Dear Parent/Carer


Hawkhirst Visit


With reference to the planned visit to Hawkhirst Scout Centre on Monday 15th to Friday 19th October 2018 a meeting will take place in the Year 6 classroom on Monday 24th September at 2.45pm to outline the trip. We encourage all parents to attend if possible to cover any questions or queries you may have.


Your child will need to be at school on Monday 15th October for 9.15am as the bus will be leaving school at approximately 9.30am. They will need to bring a packed lunch with them.

Please do not allow your child to bring a mobile phone, hand-held game consoles (e.g. DS) or any other valuable items. Card games, puzzle books and DVD’s etc. might be useful.

We have compiled a list of essential items your child will require during their stay:


  • Usual toiletries etc.

  • Hair dryer (no hair straighteners)

  • Bath towels

  • Lip balm

  • Activity clothes: tracksuits, t-shirts etc. A few sets are important (not new as they will get dirty/wet)

  • Lots of pairs of socks – more than one pair per day

  • Waterproof clothing (jacket and/or trousers)

  • Wellingtons (very important)

  • Walking boots if possible

  • Old trainers

  • Black bin bag for dirty clothes

  • Torch

  • Travel sickness tablet for return journey (to be handed to a member of staff)

  • Calpol or paracetamol (optional)


Medical and contact phone numbers

You will receive forms nearer the date of leaving.

Thank You

Year 6 Team
