Year 3 Beach Trip to West Wittering

June 24 | 08:30 - 16:30
Dear Parents/Carers, Information about Year 3,4 5 & 6 Day Trips to West Wittering Beach  Following government advice and guidance; we are delighted to be able to confirm that we will  be able to run separate year group beach trips to West Wittering beach before the end of the summer term. Each trip will run after 21st June, the date the government has scheduled to lift all national lockdown restrictions.
  • Year 3 Beach Trip will run on Thursday 24th June 2021
  • Year 5 Beach Trip will run on Tuesday 29th June 2021
  • Year 4 Beach Trip will run on Thursday 1st July 2021
  • Year 6 Beach Trip will run on Thursday 8th July 2021
 Each Year Group and staff will be joined by our Premier Sports Coaches and senior leaders who will deliver exciting sporting and beach enrichment activities on the day. Lifeguards are on duty at the beach every day from 10-5pm. Travel: We will be travelling by coach, leaving Oak Hill Academy at 8:45am on each day.   Please ensure your child/ children are at school by 8:30am. They should arrive at their usual gate where staff will meet them and take them to the main hall to register prior to leaving school. The   coach journey will last about one hour 15 minutes. If you know your child does not travel   well, please speak to their class teacher in advance. What your child will need for the trip:
  • A packed lunch – no fizzy drinks or chocolate
  • Reusable water bottle – we will provide top ups during the day
  • Bucket and spade
  • Sun cream already applied -  bring some in a bag ready to apply later in the day
  • Sun hat
  • Flip Flops
If your child receives free school meals and you would like them to have a packed lunch, please                                                  contact Mrs Lloyd in the school office. Please ensure your child is wearing their Oak Hill PE Kit. Beach activities: Once we arrive at the beach we will play games, take part in a host of   sporting activities and create sand sculptures. There will be an opportunity to paddle in the sea but no children will be allowed to swim or go beyond knee deep water. West Wittering beach has been chosen as it is very safe, the water is shallow and there are good toilet amenities. Children will picnic on the beach and pack up ready to head home at approximately 2:30pm. Traffic allowing, the coaches are due to arrive back at Oak Hill between 4pm and 4.30pm. Please note that any delays will be shared with parents and carers via text message. The cost of this trip will be £15.00 per child and is payable via the School Gateway. This price will include: return transport, an ice lolly, water refills throughout the day and replenishment of sun cream if none provided by parent. No additional spending money is required. If you do not want a staff member to apply sun cream on your child, please email your class teacher. Otherwise, we will do so if the sun is hot. This is an exciting opportunity for your child/children to experience an outdoor learning activity that we cannot offer at school. It is also a great way to close the summer term given the difficult year we have had. We hope all children will be given permission to attend! If you have any further questions, please email or speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance.
