6H have had a wonderful time on their residential at Kench Hill in Tenterden, Kent, this week. On Monday they went swimming before a night-time bat walk. After an early start (for some!) on Tuesday, the children took part on a range of activities at the centre, including archery, bread making and gardening. They then successfully completed an ambitious stream walk. After a slightly later start on Wednesday, the children visited the beach at Camber Sands, learned and applied map reading skills through orienteering and learned how to tie different knots which they used to build shelters in small teams. In the evening, they then carved the pumpkins they had harvested from the Kench Hill gardens on the previous day. On Thursday, the children visited a rare breeds centre and enjoyed an evening party, before bidding the centre farewell on Friday.
The children developed their resilience throughout the week and engaged fully in a range of activities, excelling in a range of skills. All should be proud of their contribution to what was a very successful residential visit.
