  • Lights, Camera, Action - Meridian News comes to Great Chart

    On Friday 30th April it was National Daily Mile Day and we had the pleasure of welcoming Meridian News to the school to film our teachers and pupils taking part in the Daily Mile. We started with a whole school warm-up where everybody took part. This was our first whole school meet up outside since returning to school after the national lockdown and what better way to celebrate this than featuring on the local news.  Hopefully most of the children will have seen the report on the Daily Mile on Friday but here is the link if you missed it: https://www.itv.com/news/meridian/2021-04-30/daily-mile-schools-across-the-south-join-thousands-taking-part-on-first-national-day

    On April 21st Children in Year 5 stepped back in time to 5000 years ago and enjoyed a fun-filled Egyptian workshop day. Costumes were given to each child to wear for the day while they participated in a range of carousel activities. Children mummified Oscar from 5 Griffin after pretending to remove organs to demonstrate the Egyptian rituals. Weaving was great fun and making cartouches was enjoyed by all.

  • Well-Being Day

    On Friday 12th March the whole school had a Well-Being Day. This was a wonderful end to our first week back, it couldn't have been better timing. All the children and teachers had great fun doing various activities from orienteering, making Mother's Day cards, producing stop motion movies, sketching daffodils to creating bug hotels and many more things. It was lovely to feel the buzz and excitement in the air and the children really deserved this day as they have all settled in and worked so hard during their first week back after homeschooling.
