Guardian newspaper and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

7 March 2017

Dear Parent/Carer

As part of our continued collaboration with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Year 6 will be visiting The Guardian newspaper in Kings Place on Monday 13 March.

During the visit the children will get to interview an orchestra musician and write their own newspaper articles.

This is a great opportunity for the children to experience the workings of a national newspaper and develop their skills in literacy and publishing.

Please ensure your child comes to school on this day with a packed lunch.

We will be walking to Kings Place. We plan to leave the Academy at approximately 9.30am and will return by the end of the school day. If you would be available to accompany us on the trip please indicate this on the permission slip below.

Please complete the permission slip below and return to Donna in the primary office.

Yours faithfully
