Year 5 Trip to Hall Place and Gardens.

In term 2, Year 5 went on an exciting tour of Hall Place and Gardens. Our first activity was to learn about the different staff members who ran a Victorian household. We then tried Victorian washing. The main pieces of the equipment was a bucket of water and a washing board with some carbolic soap for the object you were washing. The soap smelt disgusting so the clothes that Victorians wore didn’t smell as nice as future clothes. Due to the fact that they did not have washing machines, the washing maids had a harder job using the washing dolly. They had to put their washing into an even bigger bucket to thoroughly wash the owner of the house’s clothes. To control the washing dolly you had to gently push and then wiggle like mad, we had to show off our wiggling skills. To dry it we used a washing mangle. We put the washing in between the rollers and used the big handle on the wheel and turn it round. Mind your fingers though!

Then we went to the colossal house to examine some Victorian toys. How exciting! The owners of the house were very rich so they had lots of colourful and enjoyable toys like, skittles, spinning clowns, hoops, yo-yos on string and lots more. Later on, we made our own spinning, paper circles instead of a wooden spinning clown on string. After toy experimenting we ate our delicious lunches, we were starving! Sooner or later, we had finished our tasty lunches we all went to the house to see what sort of environment the family previously living there lived in. By then, it was getting quite late, so we decided to head off. We had an amazing day and rounded it off with the long trip back. Thank you teachers for a great day!

We Will Remember….

Today we welcomed Mr Wolvesson back to our school to join us in our Remembrance Assembly. He told the children about the air strip which was situated in Chilmington during WW2 and those men who lost their lives. It was a very touching Assembly

Year 4 Viking Day

Year 4 took part in a fantastic Viking workshop day this week.  It was an fun filled day in which children attended eight Viking workshops: a bread making workshop, a Medicine making workshop, discovering artifacts, weaving, a viking game, weapons, coil pot making and a string making activity.   All of the children learnt about the viking traditions of days gone by and they had lots of fun discovering the use of the items.   They all thoroughly enjoyed their day and we would like to say a big thank you to the Viking workshop company.

Cross Country Term 1 2017

In term 1 Great Chart have entered the four Cross Country events run at Godinton House. Each event has involved up to 20 other primary schools with 200 -300 pupils participating.  Pupils from Years 3 -6 have been involved, for some their first experience of representing the school in competition. As always we are extremely proud of all the pupils who participated and have shown great sportsmanship. All of the pupils tried their best and exceeded their own expectations. We have celebrated their participation after each event in whole school assembly where their certificates have been presented. We did have 4 medals in the events with 2 silver medals for Tom in the Year 5 boys and a silver and gold medal for Aki in the Year 3 girls. Well done everyone who took part.
