Wrapping Up The Term

Since last updating the blog there have been a number of exciting activities going on across the school.

Y6 Cookies

Last Friday, pupils from Y6 designed, made, advertised and sold biscuits to other pupils at breaktime.  Biscuits were made in all shapes, sizes (and colours – with a bright green design!).  In total the pupils took £67 and in their numeracy session worked out the total profit, which came out at about £25 for the year group.

The Infants performed their Nativity last Wednesday and Thursday, but Friday afternoon’s performance had to be cancelled as over a quarter of the school were absent with a nasty flu bug.  Fortunately enough were back at school on Monday to be able to perform.  I was in the audience and was very impressed with the show – well done to the Infants and Mrs Waugh who worked so hard with the other teachers on the show!

The number of Juniors in the school has also been low this week, but there were enough people here to be able to perform the KS2 carol service on Wednesday evening.  Everyone performed really well and it was a lovely service.  Well done to the Juniors and to Mrs Budd who organised the concert.  The evening also featured the public debut for the Mount Charles Staff Choir!

During this week pupils have been enjoying other festive treats such as the Infant parties with entertainment from Mr Wacky, the Juniors have enjoyed a cinema trip to see Marmaduke and had a party of their own.  On Wednesday we all enjoyed our Christmas dinner – well done to the canteen staff for a lovely meal.  Well done to all the pupils who made and wore their own hats during the lunch – there were some wonderful designs this year.

This morning, with the snow on the ground making everything look nice and Christmassy, the Juniors had their Sing-a-long in the hall, making use of the projector system purchased this year by the PSA.

I would like to thank you for visiting the blog over the year and wish you a very Merry Christmas.  I hope you have a wonderful time and look forward to seeing you back here in the New Year.

Torchlight Parade

The Mud Maid

On Saturday 20th November a number of our Year 5 pupils and other children from across the school took part in St Austell’s torchlight carnival.

Working with an artist from the Eden Project, each pupil made a lantern which they carried in the procession behind the large Mud Maid of Heligan.

The pupils had a great day at school making the lanterns and then enjoyed having the opportunity to take part in the parade.
