Jamie’s Farm Updates

Final Update:

It’s the final morning on the farm before we head home! The boys had a great adventure yesterday as we played games on the afternoon walk and we spotted wild horses! We had a pit stop to enjoy cookies and hot chocolate whilst taking in the scenery. We returned for a roast dinner and a camp fire where we reflected on our favourite bits of the trip- which I’m sure they can’t wait to tell families all about it!


Day 3 update:

After an amazing day paddling in streams and enjoying the sunshine. We have woken up full of energy after a good night’s sleep for our last day on the farm! We are just about to head out on the farm to do some jobs before we eat a cooked breakfast.

End of Day 1: The year 5s are just about to head out on the afternoon walk. After a busy day doing jobs around the farm.  We’ve been milking a cow, grooming the horse, making some delicious meals, fed lots of animals and even been trusted with an axe!

The principal and leadership team, well supported by the Orchard Hill College and Academy Trust, have provided strong leadership, which has had a positive impact on the school’s effectiveness. As a result, there have been improvements in all areas, most noticeably in pupils’ behaviour and attitudes, the curriculum and in the wider opportunities for pupils.
