On Monday the children in Year 6 got the chance to take on the role of a Victorian school child. By the end of the day, the children experienced needlework, botany, created zoetropes, recited their times tables and the Lord’s Prayer and finally they used a quill and ink for handwriting practise.
We are proud to present our new School Representatives for this year.The children will be supporting and representing the school at a number of events throughout the year.
One of their key roles is to guide visitors to the school on a tour where they ably and eloquently share their knowledge and answer questions with confidence. We are sure that they will take on the role with pride.
On Wednesday last week we welcomed our new Year 3 children. They arrived with smiles and eager faces ready for their new start at Herne Bay Junior School.
Mr Thomas was on hand with his video camera and captured the moments where many of them were saying goodbye to their parents and taking their first steps into life at junior school.
The children quickly settled into their classes and enjoyed getting to know their new teachers and the class routines. Mrs Kingman visited the classes after break and was pleased to see that the children were already completing written work in their new books. Freddy in 3BM was the first child to share his work and have his photo taken for Twitter! By Friday, lots of children had been to show Mrs Kingman their work and received Headteacher stickers.
We are looking forward to getting to know the children and families better in the coming weeks.
Today we celebrated Mrs Nation’s time at Herne Bay Junior School with an assembly reflecting on all the wonderful and inspirational opportunities she has brought to so many of our children… and staff members too!
Dear Staff, Pupils, Parents and Carers,
This year has been an outstanding year for Herne Bay Junior School and the whole school community can be truly proud and delighted by what has been achieved.
In January this year, the Kent Real School Guide ranked us 8th in the county, based on 36 different measures. Since then, the school has gone from strength to strength, achieving outstanding end of year results. It is clear that Herne Bay Junior School is recognised locally and county wide as a school that gets results.
