Year 5 and 6: BBC Symphony Orchestra at Barbican Centre

14 June 2018

Dear Parent/Carer

The BBC Orchestras are offering schools the chance to see a live orchestral performance of this year’s BBC Ten Pieces free of charge and we have been lucky enough to get tickets for children in Years 5 and 6 on Friday 22 June. These concerts will feature the BBC Orchestras, world class soloists and exciting presenters opening up the world of classical music to children. 

The children will be travelling to the concert hall by bus, leaving the Academy at approximately 12.45pm.  The children will eat a packed lunch before they leave school.

Please can you provide your child with a packed lunch.

If you would be available to accompany us on the trip please indicate this on the permission slip below. We have 6 helper tickets.

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

Yours faithfully

Laurence Standing
