Each year a Year 6 pupils have the opportunity to go on a residential. This is a week long trip to a working farm.
Children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare founded Farms for City Children at Nethercott House in Devon in 1976. The charity offers urban children from all over the country a unique opportunity to live and work together for a week at a time on a real farm in the heart of the countryside. It is an intense, ‘learning through doing’ experience of a different life.
My daughter Elsie and I visited the children last Saturday - a great time was had by all!
