Year 6 Residential 2023 - Magdalen Farm

Another fantastic trip to Magdalen Farm in Chard, Somerset for Year 6! We eagerly set out on our annual residential, ready to explore the wonders of the 132 acres of farm, fields, gardens, and orchards. Our arrival was met with the usual friendly faces of the resident goats, pigs, cows and chickens. 

This year brought an exciting mix of activities – from crafting cozy shelters to lighting up our own fires, pitching in with farm chores, and even embarking on a fossil hunt along the breezy Jurassic Coast.

With every day filled with laughter, learning, and friendships, this trip to Magdalen Farm is more than just an adventure; it's an exciting chapter in our school journey with many new memories and skills learnt! Thank you to the team at Magdalen for another unforgettable residential.
