Algeria win the World Cup!

As I feared when I wrote the last entry, the weather last week did conspire against us, meaning that we couldn’t hold our Sports Day – we are all crossing our fingers that the sun on the long range forecast for this coming Wednesday materialises.

I also wrote last week that a group of footballers from Mount Charles were hoping to go to Archbishop Benson to take part in a World Cup tournament.  Despite leaving the school in a torrential downpour, the tournament did go ahead.

The fourteen schools taking part were all allocated a country from the World Cup to represent – Mount Charles were given Algeria.  They didn’t let in a single goal all tournament and in the final, against Brazil (Bosvigo School) won 3-0.

Well done to our Mount Charles football team – let’s hope that England follow in their footsteps in the coming weeks.  Failing that, keep an eye on Algeria…

Weather Woes

Welcome back after a wonderful half term break.  I hope you were able to enjoy some of the beautiful weather that we had last week.  If you did something exciting, perhaps you could let us know in the comments below.

We have another packed half term coming up, but we are all looking rather anxiously at the weather reports to see if our Junior Sports Day will be able to go ahead on Wednesday – the forecast isn’t looking great at the moment…

Tomorrow a number of our pupils are hoping to go to Archbishop Benson in Truro to take part in a World Cup tournament – again, we are hoping that the weather doesn’t get in the way of this.

Several trips have already been planned for this half term across the school – there are many sporting events, the Summer Fayre (with the dilly challenge), Y6 performance, the Infants Sports Day, Sponsored Walk and much more.  Let’s hope that the Sun comes back again to let us enjoy all these events.
