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.
On Wednesday 16th November, the school basketball team went to HBHS to take part in the Herne Bay and East Kent Coastal basketball competition. Sixteen teams took part and were divided into four Groups. The top two teams in each group then went into the quarter finals. Our team played against Swalecliffe, Hampton and Ospringe. The team played with great determination and although they didn’t get into the quarter finals they played with great spirit and had an enjoyable afternoon.
On Monday Herne Bay Junior School celebrated the musical talents of our pupils with the first ‘Listen to us Live’ concert. The four classes (6AT, 6BT, 5CP, 5CO) that had been receiving music lessons with Mr Miles this term performed.
Thank you to all the children that decorated their Porchlight houses and filled them with pennies, Rachel from the charity was delighted. She also commented on how fantastic the Year 5 assembly that took place today was as it delivered an accurate message about how the Porchlight charity helps others. Once the money has been counted she will let us know how much our school have raised.
