PRE-SCHOOL VISIT – NEW LEAF ALLOTMENT, MUSCLIFF
THURSDAY, 6TH JULY 2017
We are pleased to let you know that, after the huge success of our visit last year, we have made plans to re-visit the New Leaf Allotment in Muscliff. This will take place on Thursday, 6th July, from 10.30 until approx. 1.30 p.m.
All children need to be accompanied by an adult and will be your responsibility during our visit. We need you to know that this is a very rural, working allotment and you need to be aware of tools, uneven/muddy ground, ponds etc. There is even a compost loo!! We also need to ensure that growing plants, various flower beds, volunteers who may be working at the allotment etc are respected so it is essential that your child is supervised at all times. However, this is a fabulous opportunity for the children to see vegetables and fruit growing in a really natural environment, especially as we have been growing and nurturing our own plants here at Priory View!
We aim to have a fun trip with activities which will help the children appreciate the natural environment. Please bring a picnic with you – we are hoping to have it in the orchard! There is no running water so please bring some wet wipes.
As this is such a rural location please be aware that there is no parking on-site – there are roads where you can park nearby. You will find a map on the reverse of this letter. There is a new entrance to the allotment at the back of the orchard – it can be accessed via the footpath near the rear of Muscliffe park. Walk along Muscliffe Lane, past the Epiphany school, cross Aragon Way and the footpath is on your right. Walk along the footpath for a few minutes and the gate to the allotment is on the left-hand side. Alternatively you can keep going along Muscliffe Lane until you reach the front entrance of the allotment.
Please complete the attached slip and let us know if you intend to come along on the day – this will enable us to plan our activities and resources. Please be aware that the pre-school will be closed on this day. If your child normally attends on a Thursday and is unable to come on the visit please speak to a member of staff to swap a session.
Thank you – the Priory View Team.
