Year 4 - London Zoo

On Thursday 23rd March, Year 4 will be visiting London Zoo as part of our theme for this term, ‘Rainforests’. We will be travelling to and from the zoo by public transport and eating a packed lunch whilst there.


Children should arrive promptly to school no later than 8.30am, where they will be met by their class teacher in the main hall. We are expected to arrive back to school by 4.15pm at the latest, however we will keep parents updated regarding the return journey via text.


The entry fee for London Zoo is £8 per child. Payment and permission can be made via the ‘School Gateway,’ our online payment system. The last day that payments can be made is Thursday 16th March. Please do not send cash in to the office as this will be returned to you. Children are permitted to bring no more than £5 spending money with them to visit the shop – This must be clearly labelled with their name in either a purse/wallet or envelope and given to their group leader on the day.


Your child will need to:

  • Wear full school uniform (trainers/more comfortable shoes are permitted)
  • Bring a waterproof coat
  • Bring a packed lunch and a bottle of water (this could be in a disposable plastic bag to throw away afterwards)


The school is able to provide a packed lunch for children who are entitled to free school meals. If you are eligible and would like the school to provide a packed lunch for your child, please complete the appropriate on the letter that went home today and return the slip no later than Thursday 16th March.


Thank you for your continued support.
