Sports Day

The sun shone for us for our Wimbledon Sports Day. The children took part in a range of races from Murray in a Hurry, Strawberries and Cream and the Ticket Office Dash. I was so pleased with the effort made by all the children. Thank you to Bethersden Tennis Club for their support and help with this event. For KS2,  Bodiam were the triumphant winners and for KS1, the winners were Hever. Well done everyone, you were all amazing.

Year 1 trip to the ford

On Monday 17 th July the Year 1 children took their rafts to the Ford in Ashford to test them out.

They were very excited and attempted to attach their Playmobil characters to the raft in the hope they would survive!. They all had great fun and all the rafts floated to some extent. They had raft races and had to rescue a few Playmobil men who jumped overboard!

For the first time since we introduced this activity most of the children needed their spare clothes as they enthusiastically splashed in the water!

It was lovely to see the children having fun.


Picnic in the Park 2017

Picnic in the Park Friday 14th July

We celebrated the end of the school year by entertaining our families and friends on the school field during our picnic in the park. With songs about Noah, African drumming, country dancing and cheerleading, to name only a few, we amazed our audience with our many talents. Thank you to Mrs Barker and all the staff for a really enjoyable afternoon. Thank you also to everyone who came to support the school. A really lovely community event to end the school year.

Great Chart Girls Football

On Friday 30th June, Great Chart Girls played against St. Mary’s Girls. Their first ever match in, or out of school for most! 

During the game we witnessed amazing saves from our goal keeper, Summer. Amber (our girl of the match) was brilliant, she continuously ran the full length of the pitch and put herself in some great positions. Isabella, Katia, Amara, Megan, Aimee & Ruby also all played a superb game. They defended, looked for passes and worked as a team beautifully.

Unfortunately the score line didn’t represent the team effort that was put in to the match and we lost the game. 

The whole team were a real treasure to watch and we are very much looking forward to the next academic year and arranging some more matches!!

Mrs Dolley & Miss Medlicott.

Great Chart Football Team

Yesterday afternoon (29.06.17) saw the boys from Thursdays’ football club play their first friendly as a team, against St Marys.

The first half saw chances from Rudi, Tommy D & Tommy J but Matthew was the one to hit target and provide us with a 1-0 lead at half time. 

For the second half we had almost a complete team change giving all boys a chance to play. This half saw some excellent defending from both Dylan and Tommy J. Max made some fantastic saves keeping our score at 1-0, meaning victory for Great Chart!  

Special thanks to Mr. Friday who was our referee for the match. 

We are extremely proud of the boys, you could not fault their passion!
