30.11.2018 Hansel and Gretel

November 2018

Dear Parents/Carers

Performance of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ at Derby Theatre.

On Tuesday 18th December, the Year 3 and 4 children will be attending a performance of ‘Hansel and Gretel’ at Derby Theatre. The children have been looking at ‘Hansel and Gretel’ as part of their Literacy topic this half term and we thought it would be a fantastic opportunity for the children to see this magical story brought to life at Christmas time.

All children will need to arrive on the school playground at 8.50 a.m. to leave promptly after register.  A coach is being provided to collect the children from school and bring them back before the end of the school day at 3.30 p.m.

Children will need to be in school uniform with sensible shoes, a coat and a backpack to carry their packed lunch and water bottle. We will not be visiting any shops so children will not need to bring any money with them. Your child will require a packed lunch for the day. If your child is entitled to a Free School Meal please let us know using the reply slip below (no later than Friday 7th December to assist with food preparation) and a packed lunch will be provided.

The cost of the trip will be £16.00 per child. Although this is a voluntary contribution, please be aware that if there are insufficient funds received the trip may have to be cancelled. To pay for this you can use your sQuid account which can be accessed at

If there is an issue with payment, please feel free to speak to your child’s class teacher or the office.

Please complete the form below and return it to your child’s class teacher by Friday 7th December indicating if you are willing to help. We will then allocate parent helpers and inform you as soon as possible if you are needed on this occasion.

Kind regards

The KS2 Team
