On Thursday 31st January, our much-anticipated art exhibition – Blue Planet - opened at The Horsebridge Gallery, Whitstable.
Herne Bay Junior School proudly displayed their art work alongside a number of schools, as part of the CACOT (Coastal Alliance Co-operative Trust) Art Group. The gallery is filled with a glorious feast of colour and activities - and our artwork looks amazing, for sure! The theme shared throughout the exhibition – Save Our SEAS and OCEANS from PLASTIC – is one our children are passionate about.
It was wonderful to see the coverage the school received on the ITV Meridian News on Sunday evening showing Lake and the other finalists at the ITV Studios in Maidstone. It covered Lake being interviewed as well as recording his voiceover for the animation that is being made about the Pudding Pans discovered off the coast of Herne Bay. This was all made possible by Sandra Porter from the Seaside Museum who was the brainchild behind the project and Phil Gomm from UCA Rochester who is producing the animation with his students.
Following on from the audition process that took place in school in December looking for the ‘Voice of Marcus’ for the Pudding Pan animation, eight excited children (all audition finalists)made their way to the ITV Studios in Maidstone today. They were invited to have a tour of the studios and then for Lake, the voice of Marcus, to record his voiceover.
Once inside the studios the group were taken to a base room with Mrs Amos, Mrs Prichard, Phil Gomm from UCA Rochester and Sandra Porter from The Seaside Museum. The group were met by Simon, who runs a TV Production and Media course who settled them in and explained the agenda for the day. Lake was taken into the brand new sound booth which had only just been completed to see where his voiceover would be recorded. Whilst in there ITV News contacted Mrs Amos to say they were sending a reporter down to cover the story for Meridian News! Derek, the reporter arrived and was ready to film and then interview Lake who was raring to go. As Lake couldn’t be recorded doing the ‘actual’ voiceover recording, a mock-up was set up and Lake performed with the enthusiasm that secured his place as the voice of Marcus.
What a wonderful morning for our Wonders of the World exhibition! It was amazing to see so many children showing off their incredible hard work and learning from over the last two terms. We were really impressed to see that children had gone away and explored so many different Wonders that we had not covered within class.
On Wednesday night children and families packed the King’s Hall for our annual Music Extravaganza. It was a magical night which showcased the amazing talent of so many children. A big thank you must go to Mr Miles who put the event together.
