Every Wednesday morning, our walk to school club meet at the Watstock stile and follows the footpaths through to the village, which are approximately 1 mile.
It is organised and run by Claire Woodhouse and is always accompanied by a cheery band of parents, carers and well behaved dogs on leads.
Come rain, shine or even snow, walkers gather at the Watstock stile from 8am, where they are registered followed with a prompt start at 8:10am.
Any walkers arriving after that time, must be accompanied in catching up with the club and handed over to a member of staff. Responsibility cannot be accepted for any child that has not been accounted for by a member of staff.
Whole club destinations are chosen either termly or yearly depending on world events or school topics. Each child's walk contributes towards the whole club's progression along the route. In the past these have included the World Cup in Russia, School residential locations, Rio Olympics, Britain's Coastline, Great Wall of China and Land's End to John O'Groats to name a few.
Every walker's progress can be followed on the display board outside Class 2.
Club is open to the whole school and we look forward to welcoming you all on Wednesday mornings.
Terms 1&2 we are walking the 3295 miles to Bethlehem.
For every 1 mile walked in Chiddingstone equals to 10 miles on our virtual trek!
Will we make it in time for Christmas?
