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.
On Monday 17th July all the children took part in our annual Herne Bay Juniors Sports Day.
It was wonderful to be back at Swattenden for the year 6 residential this year. We had an excellent week and enjoyed some lovely weather - plus a little rain! One of the highlights of any week like this is the opportunity to see another side of the children.
