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.
I was very proud of Year 6 last week, when they amazed me with some sublime creative writing (Narrative) using World Mountain bike Champion, Danny Mcaskill's 'The Ridge' film as a stimulus.
Here is some of the children's work.
Year 6 have been learning about electrons, electric current and circuits. A few photos of children experimenting with cells, bulbs, switches, reed switches and rheostats.
