Nell Bank Trip

Friday 15th June 2018


Dear Parents,


I am hoping to take Year 3 on a trip to Nell Bank, near Ilkley on Monday 2nd July 2018. This is an action packed day giving the children the opportunity to take part in an activity that will enrich their understanding of our topic ‘Flow’. We will begin our trip by walking through the beautiful bluebell wood and walk to the beach landing just outside of Ilkley. Here, we will discuss and experiment with the flow of the river and deposition. 

When we arrive back to the site, the children will take part in orienteering where they will work with a variety of maps in an unfamiliar environment. The children will also observe their surroundings, describe and compare physical and human features. This will enable the children to put in to practice the work they have covered in class in a practical way.


In addition, the children will get to relax and play on the adventure playground at the end of the day. This trip has been hugely successful before and it is a great chance for the children to explore, learn and work together in a different environment.


The cost of this trip is £19.20  per child. This is made up of:

  • Nell Bank entry fees £352
  • Hire of an additional mini bus & Fuel £205

 The total cost of the trip is £557 divided by 29 children is £19.20


Your child will need to be in their PE kit with suitable footwear, a waterproof coat, sun hat, sun cream and a packed lunch with drinks and an additional snack.


Contributions are voluntary, however, should insufficient contributions be received, the trip will not be able to go ahead as planned. Deadline for consent and payment is Friday 22nd June 2018.
