Year 6 Letters

Dear parents/carers, 


Our trip to Butlins is fast approaching and we wanted to remind you all of some details before we leave on Wednesday 25th May. 


  • Please can all children come to school with a packed lunch ready for them to eat at lunch time when we arrive in Minehead.
  • Spending money is allowed but a maximum of £10 please. 
  • Please can every child bring a rain jacket/coat.  
  • No electronic devices. 
  • Medication (including travel sickness tablets) please complete the attached medical form and give any medication, along with the form to your child’s class teacher. Please can it be clearly labelled. 
  • Although snacks and drinks will be provided, a drinks bottle would be advisable.  
  • Children can bring snacks but please bear in mind that all meals and extra snacks are provided.  
  • A carrier bag/bag for dirty clothes and wet swimwear would be beneficial. 


 On Wednesday morning, your child should come to school as normal. Please can their bag/s be labelled.


Please note, we will be leaving at midday on Wednesday and returning around 2pm on Friday. 


A copy of the kit list is overleaf. 


If your child is not attending our residential, they should attend school as normal.


What to Pack?  



The majority of time will be spent outdoors and this may involve people getting wet on some activities. Also, the weather can change from one moment to the next, so it is therefore essential that all guests bring waterproof clothing and footwear with them. Remember that they will need to be able to carry their own bags, so don’t overload them.  


  • Suitable nightwear  
  • Underwear (including enough socks for the activities)  
  • T-shirts and long-sleeved tops for activities  
  • Trousers/leggings/jogging bottoms  
  • 1 pair of trainers for activities  
  • 1 pair of dry shoes for evening activities  
  • Waterproof jacket  
  • Fleece/sweatshirt for activities  
  • 1 or 2 sets of evening clothes  
  • Sun hat  
  • Swimming costume (one piece) or swimming shorts 
  • Swimming towel/goggles


Other essential items: small rucksack/bag, separate towel for showering, washbag (including soap, shampoo, toothbrush & toothpaste, comb etc), labelled plastic bag for wet clothes and dirty washing, plastic drinks bottle (ESSENTIAL), sunscreen. 


Please do not bring… Mobile phones, electronic/computer games, jewellery and valuables. 


Lost Property: remember to label everything that your child brings with them – children will be responsible for their own belongings. 


If you have any questions, please call the office or speak to your class teacher.


Yours sincerely, 

Mrs Lukins, Mrs Weall  and Mr Thorne
