With a wind chill below freezing point, Year 6 braved the elements to conduct a field trip of the coast around Whitstable - a first for Goudhurst & Kilndown. We investigated coastal erosion (spits, longshore drift, groynes etc), visited a working fishing harbour and had a superb visit around the RNLI station; all polished off with a portion of chips. We even saw example of sustainable energy (from our Science last term) - the North Kent Wind Farm!
Please see the stunning photos from Mrs Chapman in our gallery.
