Year 6 - PGL Residential to Bawdsey Manor 2024

PGL Residential to Bawdsey Manor 

 

This week, our Year 6 pupils travelled to Bawdsey Manor, in Suffolk, for their PGL residential. The camps have been full of excitement, thrills and new discoveries. Throughout the week the children have taken part in various activities including: 

  • Canoeing  
  • Fencing 
  • Climbing  
  • Den building  
  • Puzzle solving  

 There has been lots on the agenda for the children who have made memories for a lifetime. We are sure you will all agree, it is lovely to see so many happy faces
    

We are confident that they will return home having mastered new skills, strengthened their character and unleashed their potential to succeed in all that they put their mind to.

Easter Service HBJS 2024

On Thursday, the school attended Christ Church for our annual Easter service. Reverend Anthony shared the Easter story with the children highlighting the key messages of this Christian event.

During, each year group sang the songs they have been rehearsing throughout the term, children shared their Easter thoughts and prayers and the choir performed Hallelujah, Salvation and Glory accompanied by Mrs Dare-Ojo.

It was an uplifting experience and occasion which was enjoyed by us all. 

    

 

 Happy Easter to you all from us here at HBJS!

 

Spring time in the Forest

We highly value the importance of being outside and the physical benefits that this has on well-being and mental health, particularly during the childhood years. Bi-weekly, the children enjoy an outdoor lesson, in our Forest Area. They also have other opportunities to explore and learn within this stimulating environment. 

Last week, Year 4 enjoyed a session outside hunting for signs of spring and were surprised with how many they found!

We have flowers blooming, frogspawn taking over the pond, bugs coming out of their hiding places and our resident guinea pigs have been moved back to their home within the forest after spending the winter months in a warmer and more secluded spot.

We are looking forward to more sunshine and springtime fun as we are outside in our learning!
