Children in Need

Soaked

Friday 16th November saw Mount Charles throwing themselves into supporting Children in Need again.

Throughout the week pupils had been bringing in T-shirts to decorate with spots, then on Friday they came to school with the T-shirts and paid to wear non-school uniform, bought official wrist bands, paid to throw wet sponges at Mr Behennah and Mr Walters, took part in sponsored silences and also brought in their coppers to see what distance they could make their donations stretch.

As I write, people are frantically counting up all the money that has been raised today.  Come back soon to see how much we raised as a school.

Perhaps you could leave a comment to let us know the highlight of your Children in Need day!

You may remember that last term our Year 5 pupils won the Kingfisher Award for the project they carried out following a trip to Kestle Farm.

As well as winning a cheque for the school and a trophy, the pupils also won a visit from a wildlife photographer, Adrian Langdon.

During the morning Adrian visited the school and worked with a group of pupils to develop their photography skills taking natural pictures around the school site.  He gave hints and tips to improve the pictures and find the perfect shot.  I am currently working on putting together a collection of the photographs from the morning – keep an eye on the website for more details!

In the second part of the morning, Adrian shared his portfolio of wildlife photographs and answered questions on how he took the photographs and about the animals he had taken such great pictures of.

The morning concluded by Adrian presenting the school with one of his photographs – that of a kingfisher taken on the River Camel.
