On Tuesday, we went to Buckingham Palace to explore and have a wonderful tour. Sadly, there was no Queen to be seen, but we got to have a sneak peek at all of her luxurious belongings. Willow and Emma absolutely loved seeing the gold-crusted ceremonial carriage while Aaliyah felt regal as she climbed the royal stairs to view Queen Victoria’s family portraits.
On Monday 23rd September our newly elected School Council made their way to London to visit the Houses of Parliament. After an early start the children enjoyed a ride down the River Thames on the Thames Clipper. We then disembarked at the Houses of Parliament. Our School Council enjoyed a guided tour around the Houses of Parliament, including visiting the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
Beach Creative recently offered Herne Bay Junior School a sponsored exhibition week with the suggested title of Climate Change. In response, this week (23rd September – 27th September), children at HBJS will take part in our annual Arts Week – Climate Change. A range of experiences will be enjoyed, with the topical theme of climate change. From this we hope your child will gain a sense of knowledge and understanding, alongside an opportunity to participate in an eclectic mix of arts activities that will enable them to make informed choices in this current and topical subject.
The exhibition itself will take place early October. More of that to come!
