National Fitness Day 2017 - Term 1
This was a day to celebrate the fun of fitness and physical activity. It is an annual event that highlights the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping to raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles.
At Herne we shared our love of bouncing by borrowing a colourful castle for the hall and each excited child took part in The Bounce Competition. There were also several keen adults joining in the challenge too! The top bouncers were rewarded with a certificate and the applause of the whole school.
Nursery and Year R children enjoyed exploring healthy fruit treats as well as outdoor fun activities during the day. Year 1 played some football training games with a fabulous coach from Charlton Athletic Community Trust while Year 2 practised their basketball skills with Mr Steele from The Bay Basketball Club.
Years 1 and 2 also walked or jogged a mile during the day! Year 2 classes used the Junior School field so it became more of a cross country run which was timed with the fastest class being declared the winner. Congratulations to Class 7 for their super-fast time.
Everyone agreed what a fabulous day it was and we are all looking forward to our next enrichment day in Term 2 – Scooter Day!
17th November - Children in Need Dance Dash
Once again our friends from Herne Bay High School came to perform another of their inspirational dances to begin our charity day for Children in Need. The whole school was ready to welcome them at 9 o’clock when they wowed us with their flips and tricks as well as their cleverly choreographed routine. The money from our own collection set them up for their day of dance dashing to as many different schools as they could manage.
Head Teachers’ Conference 23rd November
Three of our Year 2 children joined with nine other children from local infant schools to learn a dance in less than 2 hours. They demonstrated enormous commitment and such maturity at the rehearsals. Dressed up in lovely costumes they danced their way through a huge room to Katy Perry ‘Fireworks’ at the Ashford International Hotel in front of the headteachers from Kent. What an honour it was and they certainly made us all very proud.
