Write a story and win a prize!

Story Writing Competition

Tesco have invited pupils from Mount Charles to take part in a story writing competition all about healthy living and eating.

A panel of judges will award prizes to the three most original stories from each age group (2-5, 6-8 and 9-12) that best reflect healthy living or eating, and bring the three Goodness characters – Grace, Archie and Oscar – to life.  Stories should be 200-300 words long.

You will have until 15th April to write your story and then submit it to the Tesco competition.  You will need an adult to complete a consent form and then either post, email or send your entry in through the website.

All other details, terms and conditions and consent forms can be found at http://kidsbookclub.tescomagazine.com/story-competition.html

Have a go at writing the story and you could see your story published in a book, win a trip to be a zoo-keeper for a day with an overnight stay for your family in a hotel and win £500 for the school to spend on books.

Good luck – and don’t forget to let us know if you have had a go at entering the competition!

Happy New Year!

Flag&Flame

As promised the end of last term was certainly very hectic what with the Infant Nativity, Junior carol service, Christmas parties, cinema trip, Christmas sing-a-long , Christmas lunch, hat competition and the Reading Challenge Big Christmas Quiz to name but a few.  I know the pupils really enjoyed these events leading up to the Christmas holiday.

Coming back rested after the break, the calendar looks just as full for this term with plenty of activities planned for the coming the weeks.  Already this week Year 6 have been out to Carnglaze Caverns in relation to their work on Macbeth and the Reception classes have both visited the Eden Project to enjoy themselves on the ice.

Yesterday the school council pupils were photographed with the Cornish Olympic flame.  This torch has been designed by St Breock School and is travelling around Cornwall to every one of the 238 schools before the Olympics start.  At the end all the school’s names will be engraved on the torch and a book produced of the photos of its journey along the way.  They are hoping to display it at either Truro Museum or the Eden Project – keep an eye out for it later this year!

2012 promises to be an exciting year, with Olympic flame visiting St Austell in May, national celebrations for the jubilee and of course the Olympics in the summer.  What are you looking forward to this year – let us know by leaving a comment below!
