Bushcraft 2021

Here is a small selection of photos from our year 6 residential to Penshurst Place with the Bushcraft Company.  We had a fantastic time and learned so many new skills.


‘I really enjoyed Bushcraft.  I loved the camouflage and concealment activities.  I loved the food, especially the pizza because it was freshly cooked in the pizza ovens and I got to choose the toppings.  I also liked the early morning nature walks.’ Devan


‘My favourite part of Bushcraft was learning about the Salmon because it was very interesting, plus it tasted absolutely delicious.’ Florence.


‘My favourite part was camouflage and concealment, as I really enjoyed hiding and disguising myself in the woodland.’ Edward.


‘I really enjoyed Bushcraft but my favourite part was making the bracelets.  I also liked building shelters and the challenges – one of the adults had to drink tea from her boot because we won.’ Lily – May.


‘I really enjoyed learning about the Salmon.  It tasted fab!  I even ate a fish eyeball.’ Indiana.


‘I really enjoyed sitting around the campfire and toasting marsh mallows.  I liked spending time with my friends and I also learned lots of new skills like how to start a fire.’ Honey.
