Digestive System - Year 4

Year 4 have been learning about the digestive system. The children enjoyed learning about how food travels through the body and the journey that it takes. The children then used this knowledge to make replicas of the digestive system using different materials to represent the organs. The children also used this knowledge to write a story. The children took on the character of a biscuit and imagined what would happen to them as they travelled through the digestive system. 

Children in Need - Herne Bay High School 'Dance Dash' visit

Today we invited the children to attend school wearing non-school uniform in return for £1 donation to help raise funds for Children in Need. Some of them looked fabulous wearing their Pudsey inspired clothing; all for such a worthy charity. 

Herne Bay High School visited during the morning to dance their routines before dashing off to another local school as part of their annual ‘Dance Dash’. All donations that we received from our non-uniform collection were passed on to the HBHS team. They will donate the money as a collective from us all.

Mr. Egypt Visit - Year 4

Before half term Year 4 had an exciting start to their 'Ancient Worlds ' Topic with a visit from Mr Egypt, who is an Egyptologist. The morning consisted of learning about life during the Ancient Egyptian times and the children even had a go at dancing!  During the day, the children wrote their names in hieroglyphics and had a go at Egyptian Maths. In the afternoon, the children learnt about mummification and even had a go at wrapping a mummy, which was great fun! At the end of the day, Mr Egypt retold a fantastic story about a boy and his passion for the Egyptians. 

World Black History Month

On Wednesday we dedicated the day to take some time to celebrate World Black History Month.  

The whole school were involved in an “Arty Day” and the children were inspired by some astounding artists; Y3- Romare Bearden, Y4- Alma Thomas, Y5- Romare Bearden and Y6- Carolyn Mims Lawrence.

Classes also listened to a range of great music while creating some fantastic artwork of their own.

We truly have some amazing talent in our school.
