As promised, we had our prize draw in assembly this morning. Every child that had attendance of 98% and above and has arrived punctually to school had their name put into hat. BIG Congratulations to Lily Marshall in 3AT! She won an annual pass for a family of four to Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks.
This week children from across the school performed in an end of term Easter Concert. The concert was an opportunity for children to show off the music they had been learning in clubs and lessons with Mr Miles. Group performances included the newly formed Herne Bay Junior School Orchestra performing for the very first time as well as the year 3 Gamelan Ensemble, Year 5 singers and Rock School.
Year 3 would like to say a huge thank you to all those that attended our 'Journey through Time' exhibition on Monday morning. It was great fun sharing all of the children's wonderful projects which they have worked so hard on.
On Monday 30 March 2015 Herne Bay Junior School held their very first performance of ‘Born to Shine’.
Born to Shine is where children audition their specific talent and teach a member of staff how to do this talent. Names of staff were put into a hat and pulled out to work with a specific child. A month has been devoted to practice and culminated in the final performance by the staff member and child to the whole school. To add to the pressure three judges, Mrs Nation, Mrs Hall and Mr Onions, passed comment on every act and had to make the difficult decision of chosing a winner.
This has proved to be a nerve wracking but fulfilling experience for the adults involved. However the children and staff have felt it has been really worthwhile and they have learnt a lot, both as a teacher and as a learner.
Darcy Priston said ‘I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to teach our talent to’.
