Last week, 5RW travelled down to Wick Court farm in Gloucester. Once we arrived, we were given our first jobs straight away. Group 1 had to walk over 2 fields at 7pm to feed the cows! Over the course of the week, the children and staff all carried out different tasks on the farm: feeding the animals, picking plums, planting trees, cleaning out the stables and cooking food.
On the last day of the trip, the children had the opportunity to choose their activity for the afternoon. Some children went searching in the woods for materials to build dens, others chose to stay in the warm to weave and some decided to build crowns out of woodland objects. The staff at Wick Court were sad to see us go and told Mr Watters how fantastic and well behaved the children were.
5RW had a fantastic week on the farm and we can’t wait to hear about 5RB’s trip in March!
What an exciting week we’ve had. Posing with the horses this morning.
