On Wednesday 18th November, the school basketball team went to HBHS to take part in the Herne Bay and East Kent Coastal basketball competition. Twenty teams took part and were divided into groups of five. The top two teams in each group then went into the quarter finals. Our team played well in their group, winning all four games against Luddenham, Brairy, Davington, and Ospringe thus putting them top of their group and into the quarter finals where they faced Hampton. The quarter final against Hampton was very close and at the end of normal time the score was 6-6. Extra time was played and our team won it with a golden basket. In the semi-final, the team played Herne and in another close match Herne scored a basket in the last minute to win 4-3. In a very strong competition, the school basketball team came joint third. Herne went on to beat Davington in the final. Well done Herne Bay Juniors!
Year 6 have travelled back in time this week as part of their Tides of Change topic. They have previously learned about the reign of Queen Victoria (our second longest reigning monarch!), the artist William Morris and conditions in Victorian workhouses.
It is the end of Term 1 and we, the Governors, would like to take this opportunity to say how pleased we are with the positive way the new school year has begun. Year 3 have settled quickly and calmly into life at Herne Bay Juniors and there have been exciting experiences for all year groups. Thank you for ensuring that your children are regularly and punctually attending school, this is an area which we are constantly striving to improve.
On Tuesday 20th October 2015 Herne Bay Junior School formally welcomed Patrick Leeson, Corporate Director of Education for Kent, to open the new reception area. This new entrance provides an impressive, welcoming environment to our constantly improving school.
On Friday 16th October, Year 5 children took part in an assembly to celebrate the Harvest Festival. They performed a play called, “Eat Your Peas”, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the rest of the school.
