As part of our current topic, your child will be taking part in an exciting trip to ‘The Runway Visitor Park’ at Manchester Airport. Pupils will be leaving school at 10.30am prompt and will be returning at the end of the day. All pupils will need their full school uniform, a suitable coat and footwear with them as many of the activities they will be taking part in are outdoors. Pupils will be provided with a packed lunch. Whilst at the airport, children will be taking part in pilot role-playing on the DC10 aircraft along with being able to view planes of many shapes, sizes land, and take off at close range! Any parents who are able to volunteer on the day would be much appreciated. Please complete the permission slip and return to your child's class if you would like to be considered as a volunteer. Volunteers will be confirmed and notified nearer the time.
