Y5 2022-23 Plans overview

Morfa Bay Residential Visit September 2023

We are hoping to be able to take the children who will be in Y6 next year on a residential visit to Morfa Bay Adventure, Pendine in West Wales. We have been taking our Y6 children to Morfa Bay for many years now and we hope that circumstances will allow us to take the children once again next year. We have a provisional booking for 4 nights from Monday 11th September, returning on Friday 15th September 2023. A letter has been sent out to parents of current Y5 children:

Morfa Bay 2023 Initial letter Nov 2022

We will be available to talk more about the visit and try to answer any questions you have about Morfa Bay on Wednesday 7th December at 3:30pm in the Infant Hall.
