It’s not every day you get to see a number of creepy crawlies that live within depths of the rainforest – let alone handle them. However, for the Year 6 children at HBJS, a visit from Zoo Lab made this possible. Zoo Lab brought in a variety of animals, some of which they were even allowed to handle – with care of course. We found out all of the ingenious ways that these creatures manage to protect themselves.
On Wednesday 17th January, a team of eighteen Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a Sportshall Athletics event at Herne Bay High School. The competition included a range of activities such as relays, speed bounce and javelin. Our team really enjoyed the afternoon and came 6th out of the 15 teams that took part. Well done to all!
Our links with the Gulbenkian theatre are developing and strengthening. On Monday 15th February thirty Year 5 children took part in a Dance Workshop.The ART(Y)31 project is hoping to enable young people to challenge ideas and ignite change in the arts.The first phase of the programme is to consult children (and parents where possible) about what arts and creativity mean to them and the changes they would like to see to enable more children and young people to access high quality arts activity across Kent. We hope that children from our school will be inspired to participate, and that they'll be able to make changes within Kent for their peers with regards to the availability of the Arts for young people.
This week every child in the school received a talk from The Breck Foundation on internet safety. We were very lucky to have Lorin LaFave, the founder of the charity talking first-hand about how internet safety has impacted her family and what the children need to do to stay safe online. Her powerful message was perfectly delivered and certainly gave the children and staff a lot to think about.
Today, Year 4 had the opportunity to showcase their final projects for the topic 'Wonders of the World'. The children have taken the time to create some fantastic work demonstrating their learning of a selection of the Wonders of the World, whether that be the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt or the Great Wall of China.
