Lineham Farm (from 29.3.17 until 31.3.17)
Year 4 pupils recently took part in a 3 day residential to Lineham Farm Children’s Centre. It was a time to learn about the importance of team work and put their problem solving and communication skills to the test!
The children also took on responsibilities like making their own beds on arrival, washing the pots after dinner and keeping their rooms tidy for room inspections which encouraged their independence.
All of the activities were led by experienced members of staff from Lineham Farm and the children were spilt into 4 groups. The children took part in a whole range of activities including; cycling, climbing, orienteering, country walking, animal care and even got the chance to develop their knowledge of First Aid through a certificated programme called ‘Heart Start’.
Overall the children had an amazing time at Lineham Farm and were able to experience staying away from home for a short period of time whilst taking part in a range of skill developing activities.
