Celebration Assembly

Just because we’re not all at school doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our usual Celebration Assembly. Here you can find our latest virtual Celebration Assembly which celebrates the excellent work that our children have been completing both at school and at home this week. Please take a look. We will be publishing a new assembly every Friday.

Harry Potter Studio Trip

On Thursday 27th February 14 Harry Potter fans from years 3 – 6 went to magical tour of the Harry Potter Studio. The day started with a ‘script to screen’ workshop where the children got to act out a scene for one of the films, look at props and clothing and found out more about how the films were made.

A Visit to The Lion King!

Some of our children were lucky enough to travel to London to see the west end musical of The Lion King. We had a minibus full of excited children who took in all the landmarks in London on their way to the Lyceum Theatre. The children were amazed to see so many black taxis and ‘the big wheel by the river’!

Once seated, it wasn’t long before the show began. As soon as the opening note to The Circle of Life was sung by Rafiki, the children were hooked. The animals made their way through the audience and the children were amazed by the incredible costumes. A fun afternoon was had by all and we couldn’t resist a singalong to Hakuna Matata – we were almost as good as the real performers! Throughout the show, the children were impeccably behaved which was greatly appreciated by Miss Neame and Mrs Botzet. Thank you for a fantastic day! ​

World Book Day 2020

Across the school the children took part in various fun and creative reading and writing opportunities to really promote a love of books and of reading, not just for pleasure but also for a purpose.

Young Voices 2020 Concert

On Tuesday we took a coach full of excited children to the Young Voices 2020 concert in London.

The children had been practising for weeks for this annual trip where choirs from all over the South East descend upon the 02 Arena. This in turn makes a choir of 8,400 children singing in unison in an arena full of proud parents, family and friends. This is a trip that we do every year, it gives some of our children an opportunity to visit this iconic venue and experience life outside of Herne Bay.

Tony Hadley headlined this year and the children were excited to perform alongside him. Ruti, who won The Voice last year also sang with the children. So many of our parents came and supported their children and the enthusiasm from everyone shone through.

 Once the concert finished it was time to take a weary group of children back home, many of them fell asleep on the coach!

 Enrichment is such a key part of school life at Herne Bay Junior School and something we will continue to embrace.
