Abbeyfield Primary Academy


22nd October 2018

Dear Parents/Carers,


On the 6th of November, Year 4 will be having a visitor who will be running an India themed workshop to help bring our new topic alive for the children.


Our workshop leader is Frances Brinklow, who has lead several very successful workshops at Abbeyfield. She will cover life on the Ganges through costume and drama, using storytelling techniques and artefacts to bring different geographical areas and elements of the caste system to life. The children will also collaborate in creating an Indian art collage of some of the stories they have told in the drama session, using Indian fine art techniques.


The cost of the workshop will be £1

We would be very grateful if you could enclose the £1 with the permission slip. This contribution is voluntary, but unfortunately the school cannot fund such enrichment activities itself, so if we do not receive enough contributions, this experience, as well as future trips, may not go ahead.


Yours sincerely,


The Y4 team.


I give permission for my child __________________________ in Class _______________to attend the India workshop on 6th November.


I enclose a contribution of £1 for the cost of the workshop.
