It’s been a busy 2017 so far in Kenya class

Kenya has done an amazingly wide variety of activities including attending a careers fair, a football tournament in Strood and a life skills trip to Ashford to name but three.

As well as preparing for the up and coming Entry Level exams Kenya have been using their time at The Beacon with a wide range of activities. The class continues to produce amazing dishes in their Food Technology classes. This term has seen dishes such as Chinese Noodles, Trifles and Cornish Pasties. All delicious.

A life skills trip to Ashford gave the group the opportunity to experience and learn about how to read timetables and purchase tickets in order to travel on the train from Folkestone Central to Ashford International. Once there the pupils walked safely into the shopping heart of the town where they were able to use their money to choose items to purchase. Our pupils managed very well and were able to work out their change and estimate what they could buy.

The Ashford International Hotel provided the venue for the Kent Choices Fair. Our pupils were fascinated by the range of opportunities that are available after they leave full-time education. The Kent Police stall was particularly helpful, suggesting one of our students would possibly be able to work in their call centre.

Well done to the whole class for asking sensible questions from those stall that they were interested in. Kenya performed an assembly for Zone 3 with the theme of our feelings. This involved a role play concerning how to interact with people to make sure that we communicate positively.

Kenya were sad to say goodbye to a good friend Billy, who has now moved on and the class all miss him but wish him the best luck for his future.
