On Wednesday the 31st of January, some of our children had the opportunity to visit ‘The Lyceum Theatre’ where they saw ‘The Lion King’ – a truly spectacular show. Throughout the show, the children were completely transfixed and their eyes were glued to the stage; some were even on the edge of their seat. The experience was nothing short of magnificent and it will undoubtedly be a day that the children will remember for a very long time. Each and every one of them represented our school in true HBJS style and we are incredibly proud of how well they behaved on the trip.
Wow! What a fascinating day of learning we had for Mexicolore. It all began with a Mayan number chant and suddenly we were all singing and dancing our way through the whole experience. Every single one of us got the opportunity to take part in activities – including tribal chants, playing Pok-a-tok (an ancient civilisation game) and looking in depth at the cooking utensils and musical instruments they created.
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.
