Home Farm Residential Blog
What an amazing first day at Home Farm. We all arrived safely and enjoyed our packed lunches.
So far, we have:
Fed the pigs
Put the chickens, cockerels and turkeys to bed
Done some bird watching
Met the sheep and guinea pigs
Mucked out the pig sty.
Soon we will be having our evening meal before heading out for a camp fire.
Zuzanna says, 'I loved helping the turkeys get into their shed.'
Frank says, 'My favourite thing has been meeting the sheep.'
'My favourite thing so far has been hugging a rabbit,' says Noah.
'And my favourite bunny is call Pikachu!' says Charlie.
We have redesigned the school curriculum plan so that, while it is still based on the National Curriculum, it better reflects our ethos and values. One of the main changes is the addition of planned enrichment and an emphasis on our school context as well as developing a Growth Mindset (a belief that everyone can learn and improve). We want our children to have aspirations for the future, but believe that in order for that to happen, we need to give them different experiences so that they know what they might aspire to.
