We were very fortunate to welcome Team GB gymnast Courtney Tulloch to the school today to lead our whole school assembly. Courtney took time out of his exceptionally busy schedule to come and talk to and inspire our children. He explained to the children about his journey which started with him joining a gymnastics club at the age of six and then his progression to where he is now, training to become part of the Olympic team travelling to Rio this summer.
This morning on BBC Radio 2, Evie Fowler was announced as the winner of the 500 word story competition in her age range (5-9) with her story, Poor Pig’s Revenge. We are thrilled and delighted for her as well as being very proud. She has talked about sharing stories with her friends in the tent when she went camping at Bushcraft and from this storytelling she developed her ideas into her winning story.
On Wednesday 25th May the Year 3 & 4 Tri-Golf team went to Herne Bay High School for the East Kent Coastal Tri- Golf competition. 11 schools entered the competition. The event consisted of eight golf stations where the players had to win points for their putting, chipping and driving skills. Our Year 3 & 4 team consisted of 5 boys and 5 girls; they listened to the rules and instructions and played with a lot of ability and skill.
As part of our Enrichment Programme, on Monday 16th May, Herne Bay Junior School’s minibus, with 11 children and three adults, headed for the Yorkshire hills. Our mission was to share an overnight camp in the Scout’s Bunkhouse near Barnsley, followed by a day at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
With the school minibus packed we set off to the Natural History Museum to stay the night for an event known as 'Dinosnores'. Four members of staff and fifteen children arrived in London from Herne Bay in Kent around 3 pm on a sunny Saturday afternoon. The minibus safely parked in a 'very' expensive London car park close to the museum we nipped into the Science Museum for a quick wander round before the doors opened at the Natural Museum at 18.45 for our overnight stay.
