Year 1 and Year 2 St Alphege Sport 2022-2023

This year we have really strengthened our relationship with our sister school St Alphege. Children in Year 1 and Year 2 have enjoyed termly events with children from both schools, making new friends and learning new sports. We look forward to continuing this each year.

Swimming 2022-2023

At Herne, we love to immerse ourselves in new experiences and activities. One of our favourite activities is to go swimming! Each class visits the local swimming pool for 5 consecutive lessons each year!

Surfing workshop 2022-2023

This year we had a fantastic visit from Kent Surf School to learn all about surfing. We were all keen to practise our balancing skills and complete different surfing activities! We can’t wait for Kent Surf School to visit again in the future!

Scooter Day 2023

We had a brilliant scooter day with Team Rubicon! We learnt lots of new skills and tricks on the scooters and can’t wait to keep practising at home!

National Fitness Day 2022-2023

As part of National Fitness Day, each class completed different active challenges throughout the day. We were motivated by special visitors who challenged us to learn new dance moves, play team games and increase our fitness. We learnt about the importance of looking after our bodies by exercising and showed great perseverance when we felt tired! Thank you to Herne Bay High Sports Partnership, Inclusive Sport and Dance Days for a great day!

Circus Day 2022-23

Lucas Jet kindly returned to Herne to provide another incredible Circus Day experience! Our day started with a brilliant show where Lucas performed lots of amazing tricks. Each class then had a session with Lucas to learn circus skills including plate spinning and using flower sticks!

Bounce Beyond 2022-2023

We had an absolutely brilliant time with our special visitors from Bounce Beyond! We learnt how to bounce safely, challenged ourselves to keep moving throughout the session and completed different challenges to music. Our highlight was the trampoline disco in the dark with disco lights!

Athlete visit 2022-2023

We enjoyed a special visit from British boxer Hannah Beharry who is a two time European Boxing Champion. Hannah gave a motivational speech to the school about her experience of becoming a boxer and also encouraged each class to complete a fitness challenge.

Appeti Tennis

Children in Year 1 have loved learning new skills during PE lessons with our special visitor from Appeti tennis! They had to concentrate very carefully to hold the tennis racket correctly and control the ball.

Circus Day

We love having Lucas Jett to visit us with his spectacular circus show! He showed us some amazing tricks and we even got to learn some circus skills too!

Cross Country

We have been trying really hard to improve our cross country running skills in Year 1 and Year 2. It is always very exciting visiting the Junior school field and challenging ourselves to complete the course without stopping!

Scooter Day

Scooter day is always a highlight of the year with every child invited to bring in their own scooter from home for the day! The children have so much fun scooting around the playground with their friends, completing courses and learning new skills.

Year 2 Basketball Festival

A few children in Year 2 were very excited to visit Herne Bay High with other local primary schools for an afternoon learning new basketball skills. The children practised dribbling the ball, shooting at the basket and throwing and catching. They also loved learning how to defend and play a match at the end of the afternoon!

Year 2 Cornerball Festival

Some Year 2 children were very pleased to be chosen to take part in a corner ball festival for the afternoon. We had a special visitor from the Sports Partnership at Herne Bay High who came to teach us how to play the game. We were very competitive and loved cheering for our teams!
