KS2 Carol Service

KS2 children sang their hearts out during our Carol Service at St Mary’s Church, Great Chart. Max, in Year 6, read beautifully and the children listened really well to Rev Aldis’ address.  It was a lovely service, creating a very festive atmosphere. 


Year 5 and 6 Sportshall Athletics

On Thursday 15th November a team of Year 5 and 6 pupils represented Great Chart School at the Sportshall Athletics competition at the Sour Centre. There were two events with 32 teams in total and the children participated in a range of fun relays, jumping and throwing events to earn points towards an overall total. As always the children showed great sportsmanship and competed to the best of their ability and came an overall 14th place. Well done team Great Chart!

Kent County Cross Country Event 2018

On Saturday 17th November 5 pupils from Great Chart participated in the Kent County Cross Country finals at the Detling Showground. It was an enormous event with over 1400 children from 90 Kent Junior Schools competing. The course was tough with long, wet grass and a steep hill to contend with.

The children showed great resilience, strength and talent as they competed with the best in Kent and had some amazing results. In each event there were about 170 pupils so competition was fierce:

Oscar – Year 3 boys was 9th place

Willow – Year 3 girls was 49th place

Jack –Year 4 boys was 39th place

Aki – Year 4 girls was 2nd place

Tom – Year 6 boys was 5th place and qualified on for National trials.

An amazing performance from them all. We celebrated their success in assembly too.

Children in Need 2018

On Friday 16th November, Foundation Stage celebrated Children in Need and wore spots to raise lots!  The children brought in cakes to sell and enjoyed buying one to eat too!  They covered Pudsey in spare change and had a Teddy Bears Picnic in the afternoon.  Foundation Stage also sold cakes to the rest of the school at the end of the day.  The children raised a massive  £474.26. Thank you to everyone who made a contribution on the day.
