On Wednesday 25th May the Year 3 & 4 Tri-Golf team went to Herne Bay High School for the East Kent Coastal Tri- Golf competition. 11 schools entered the competition. The event consisted of eight golf stations where the players had to win points for their putting, chipping and driving skills. Our Year 3 & 4 team consisted of 5 boys and 5 girls; they listened to the rules and instructions and played with a lot of ability and skill.
As part of our Enrichment Programme, on Monday 16th May, Herne Bay Junior School’s minibus, with 11 children and three adults, headed for the Yorkshire hills. Our mission was to share an overnight camp in the Scout’s Bunkhouse near Barnsley, followed by a day at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
With the school minibus packed we set off to the Natural History Museum to stay the night for an event known as 'Dinosnores'. Four members of staff and fifteen children arrived in London from Herne Bay in Kent around 3 pm on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The minibus safely parked in a 'very' expensive London car park close to the museum we nipped into the Science Museum for a quick wander round before the doors opened at the Natural Museum at 18.45 for our overnight stay.
On Wednesday 11th May, Miss Pirie and Mr Ware took a group of Year 3 and 4 children to take part in a Sports Hall Athletics competition at Herne Bay High.

After all children taking part in two track events and two field events each, the scores were added up and Herne Bay Juniors came a respectable 6th out of 15 other local schools!
