Year 4 were incredibly lucky to attend Lineham Farm Residential this half term. It was a brilliant opportunity for children to build their resilience, teamwork skills, independence and most importantly, have loads of fun!
We took part in different activities over the 3 days. These were Lineham Explorers where we took part in a stream walk, learned about local wildlife and looked after the animals they have on the farm. The children also took part in cycling; learning to ride a bike and having a go on challenging jump tracks! During climbing, children had the opportunity to try a range of different climbing walls and a rope obstacle course. This was really an opportunity to face their fears and they did brilliantly. Bushcraft involved building their own shelters and toasting marshmallows over fires they lit themselves! Children also had to make their own beds, keep their rooms tidy, and set and clear the tables.
During evenings, children played together in the games room. 4EB were able to experience a nightwalk which was very exciting and 4LB performed a Christmas Concert!

What The Teacher Says
“I absolutely loved Lineham Farm! It was wonderful to see the children having so much fun and having an opportunity to do different things. They showed so much resilience and many of them faced their fears and learnt a new skill. Children who were already confident at something were so supportive of anyone who was a bit nervous. The children were brilliantly behaved and a credit to the school!”
