To see the previous years pictures of Herd Farm, go to the children's section/Year 6/ Residential and click on the year you wish to see.
For the past 5 years we have been to Herd Farm for our Year 6 residential. This year we decided on a change and we are going to Lineham Farm.
The children in year 6 look forward to the residential. It’s a time to celebrate their primary school years and to learn important team work skills. The children also take on responsibilities like making their own beds on arrival, washing the pots after dinner and keeping their rooms tidy for room inspections.
The activities are run by Lineham Farm and the children are spilt into 3 groups. The children love the activities and take part in three exctiting opportunies each day.
The food is superb and they cater for all dietary requirements.
The bedrooms range from 4 beds in a room, to 10 beds in a room and children are allocated a room on arrival. The teachers think carefully about the groups and boys and girls are separate.
A warm, waterproof coat (come rain or shine the children will be outside).
Warm outdoor clothes (which may get muddy).
Toiletries – Sun cream, Shampoo, Conditioner, Shower gel, Toothpaste...
Medication – Please give any medication to Mrs Hayes or Mr Kellet with your child’s name on and instructions on dosage.
One treat (sweets, crisps or chocolate).
Marshmallows – We may have a bonfire one night and we toast the marshmallows.
Sun hat (be prepared for sunny weather too).
A game console (not a phone). It will be the child’s responsibility to look after this. The children will be allowed an hour chill out time. In their rooms where they can play games and chat before dinner.
Money - No more then £4. The children might get the opportunity to buy gifts.
What not to bring –
If your child has a food allergy/intolerance, wets the bed, sleep walks or you have any other concerns please let Mrs Hayes or Mr Kellet know before the trip. There is no problem as all these issues can be addressed and there are no barriers in terms of children taking part in the residential.
