Butterflies & Fireflies

Dear parents/carers of Year 5 children in Firefly class,


Over the last term, your child has been creating a brilliant piece of artwork known as a cyanotype based all around them and their identity. Sidcot school fully funded this across all ELAN schools and have very kindly invited the children to view their work in an exhibition space and take part in a mini workshop. This will be held at Sidcot school and will take place during the school day on Wednesday 15th November.


Children will be collected by coach and transported to Sidcot school for part of the afternoon. This does therefore mean that all Year 5 children will need a packed lunch to eat on site at Sidcot. If your child has a free school meal, this will be provided for them however all other children will need to ensure that they bring a packed lunch. 


Children are expected to wear school uniform as normal.


Please reply to this email giving your child’s name and confirm that you give permission for them to go on this trip by Monday 13th November. 


Best wishes,


Mrs Rogers

Our Key Stage 2 field trips this term will be focusing on mapping in the local area.  We will be walking along roads within Banwell and will take part in a number of activities on the school site.  The field trips will take place on Tuesday 17th October (Butterfly Class) and Friday 20th October (Firefly Class and Cricket Class).  On those days:


  • children should come into school wearing school uniform with wellington boots or a change of shoes suitable for walking across wet grass
  • children should bring a spare pair of dry socks
  • lunch will be in the dining hall at the same time as usual - there is no need to change lunch arrangements
  • we will start and finish school at the same times as usual

All children in years 3-6 take part in field trips every term.  This is a key part of our geography curriculum offer.

Best wishes
