2016 Nethercott – ready for off!

Year 6 are ready to  venture  off to the wilds of Devon for the next eight days, living and working like farmers, enjoying fresh home-cooked food and oodles of fresh country air! It’s Nethercott time again!

We all look forward to writing our letters home at the weekend so Mums & Dads will be able to hear from us. (Fingers crossed that the postman is able to deliver the letters before our return!)

We can’t promise to post lots of blogs, as the internet reception is  intermittent and it does take a lot of time to complete, taking an adult away from supervising the children. Of  course, the children come first so we hope parents will understand!          If we are able, then we will try to post 1 or 2 blogs.

We look forward to sharing all the pictures and stories of our week on our return!

Enjoy a peaceful week at home!

    Hello to all of the farmers in year 6, we hope that ‘storm Imogen’ does not rattle the windows and doors at the farm and scare the animals too much. 80 miles an hour winds will certainly test a few fence panels, and we can imagine you may be doing clean up duties as part of your tasks in the next few days.
    Here in Hampshire, we certainly need to batten down the hatches too, lets hope there is not too much storm damage here. We are looking forward to hearing about your time at Nethercott so far, hopefully the wifi is kind to the adults who will try post on the blog at your end so us poor people left behind can hear all about your adventures.
    Remember to keep up those Titchfield Primary smiles for the staff (and the camera)
