On Thursday evening Herne Bay Junior School held their third Music Extravaganza and for only the second time at the Kings Hall so making it one of the highlights of the school year. More children than ever took part with over 250 involved and huge support from all the 498 parents, carers and relations who attended. It was a magical evening with outstanding talents showcased by the children.
This week Year 3 were very excited to hold our 'Life in the Freezer' exhibition. This was a fantastic chance for all the children to show off some of their hard work from over the last two terms. We were inundated with wonderful and creative projects which impressed all of the staff and visitors.
Last week we had our ‘film week’ which we based on The Palio, a film directed by Cosmia Spender about the famous horse race that takes place in Siena. We were honoured that Cosima agreed to visit our school and see what the children had created during a whole school sharing assembly. The children captured the thrill and excitement of the race in their artwork, writing and trailers for the film. Cosima was delighted with the children’s enthusiasm for something that she is very passionate about herself. What a fantastic learning opportunity for our children with some amazing outcomes.
We have had a very successful film week with some outstanding outcomes. Today we were honoured to have a visit from Cosima Spender, director of the film Palio. We have as a whole school been working all week from the film, discovering all about this ancient horse race held in Sienna, Italy. The children have learnt so much and produced some wonderful written work as well as a range of creative outcomes.
What a fabulous effort everyone made for Children in Need today. There are some great photographs on our Twitter page and below of the children (and staff) dressed as their Superhero.
