The rehearsals for the Year 6 production of Macbeth kicked off with a visit to the King's Hall with some of our key cast members earlier this week. The visit gave us the opportunity to become familiar with the space the cast will be performing in and to measure the stage for rehearsals back at school.
The school were very fortunate to have former pupil Joe Skeats come in to our whole school assembly and talk to the children about the epic journey he is about to undertake. Joe has decided to cycle from England to Australia. Joe has been on many adventures which include skiing, climbing and kayaking in the French Alps to working as a cowboy in Upstate New York!
On Wednesday 29th April, a team of 10 Year 6 HBJS children took part in the Herne Bay & East Kent Coastal Handball competition held at Herne Bay High School. The first hour consisted of some coaching given to all 12 teams taking part by Tom Middleton, the Handball development officer. The teams were then split into 3 groups with the winners and the best placed second team going through to the semi-finals. Our school team did well, winning 2 and drawing 1 to win their group and progress into the semi-finals.In the semi-final, they played Hampton which was played in good spirit and HBJS won 6-3. In the final, HBJS played Briary school. In another hard match the team played well and with a 4-0 result became the Herne Bay & East Kent Coastal champions. The team now go on to represent the area in the Kent Finals in Folkestone in June.
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.
