School Council counted and verified the votes and the winner of our UK Parliament Week School Poll was:
Bedtime story day (263 votes).
School Council will now work on setting a date and arranging this exciting new day. School Council all received a certificate for helping organise and run our polling station and UKPW event.
In other news School Council have new notebooks to help record pupil comments from their classes. All pupil comments are then discussed during our weekly meetings.
This year for UK Parliament week School Council decided to hold a whole school vote. School Council set up a vote for a whole school special day. UKPW allowed our School Council to find out more about the voting process, including using ballot papers. School Council members enjoyed communicating the vote to their classes and helping run the voting station.
On Friday 11th October, a group of 14 children from years 3 to 6 enjoyed an overnight stay at London’s Science Museum where they learnt about all things space! The trip started as all trips should – with tea! From here, we dropped our overnight things off and started our evening activities. The children (and adults) were wowed with explosions, fire, rockets and fantastic explanations of the museum’s exhibits.
If you were walking along Kings Road, Herne Bay on Friday 4th October, or even in the local Memorial Park, you might have noticed Herne Bay Junior School children were taking a lively and meaningful walk!
As part of our Arts Week - Climate Change - children explored and discovered what is meant by climate change and then, at the close of the project, they assembled and walked in recognition of their views and thoughts on this topical subject. All the children were not only able to express themselves by walking and singing with their placards but their work from the week was also exhibited at Beach Creative, making a colourful and rich collection for all to see.
The School Council were recently invited to have Afternoon Tea with Mrs Kingman. They were eager to use the time wisely and prepared by choosing some important points to raise. The School Council enjoyed some delicious cakes made by Mrs Gower and were all actively involved in discussing what they would like to see achieved by the new School Council this year.
Several points were raised, such as making improvements to outdoor environment as well as being eager to engage in and initiate a community project. The School Council also discussed our upcoming School's Parliament week and spoke about options for voting, petitions and debates within our school. The School Council are looking forward to our next meeting where we can start to put our ideas into action!
