On Tuesday 24th May, 12 very excited children and 3 enthusiastic adults; Mrs Evett-Collins, Miss Brady and Mr Kingman, left school to venture North towards Norfolk for an overnight stay in Sheringham Youth Hostel and a day at Hickling Broad Nature Reserve.
The minibus trip was incredibly interesting as Mr Kingman pointed out deer, bat bridges and lots of farming and agricultural land features in Suffolk and Norfolk. He knew the area extremely well.
On Monday night 15 children were taken by Mr Blake and Mrs Prichard to stay overnight on board HMS Belfast in London, via the school minibus and a trip on a Thames Clipper.
Once aboard the ship, the children took part in a number of practical events: designing their own ship's mug and flag and a private night time tour of the ship.

On Friday 17th March Herne Bay Junior School hosted the annual Schools’ Parliament event. Nine local schools brought their School Council members along for a morning of debates around behaviour in school. Roger Gough, Cabinet member for Education and Health Reform took time out of his busy schedule to act as Chair and he seemed to enjoy it as much as the children!
There were six topics up for debate – attendance, uniform, behaviour for learning, lunchtime, play time and homework. The children whose ages ranged from 6 – 11yrs were full of opinions and ideas relating to all these topics and some great suggestions were put forward for all the schools to take away and discuss in their own setting.
All in all a hugely successful morning bringing children together to learn the art of debating.
On Thursday HBJS was transformed into a magical land full of storybook heroes, villains, animals and much more. All pupils (and many staff) embraced the opportunity to dress as the character from a book and as usual we were astounded by the originality and creativity of the costumes. Thank you parents and carers!
