REMINDER: X/E25 Fieldwork Wednesday 9th June!

Welome back to school, we hope you have all had nice break!

Just a reminder: All of X25 and E25 will be carrying out fieldwork tomorrow- Wednesday 9th June- at the National Holocaust Centre and Museum in Newark, as part of our expedition ‘Just a Number’.  Students should arrive at school at the normal time, to be registered in Crew; the coaches will then leave at 9am promptly.

All students will need to have something to write with, a packed lunch (unless they have requested a school packed lunch via their Crew Leader) and sufficient water for the day- it is going to be very warm, according to the weather forecast. As well as this, students should wear appropriate clothing for the weather and also the sensitive nature of the centre. A sun hat and suncream applied before leaving home, may also be advisable for some students.

Due to Covid 19, the centre has asked that all students wear a face covering inside the centre, unless they are medically exempt. The formation of bubbles as well as every other suggested precaution, has been put in place by ourselves and/or the centre, to maintain our students’ safety.

We are aiming to set off on our return journey to school at 2.30pm, so should hopefully arrive back at school for 3.15pm. However, owing to the variable nature of traffic on the roads, it may be slightly later than this time.

Finally, can we please remind you that we are a nut-free school, so nothing containing nuts in packed lunches please. Fizzy drinks are also not appropriate. There will be no need for snack etc. on the coaches, and as always we urge students to leave no trace.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to email me at smccarthy@xpschool.org.

Thanks, Mrs. McCarthy, Humanities teacher at XP East
