On Monday 3rd October, the A team netball squad went to St. Mewan to play their very first tournament. This was also the first time they had played as a team this year.. There were four other schools at the tournament, here’s the results:

Carclaze 8 – Mount Charles 3              Bishop Bronsecombe 1 – Mount Charles 2

St Mewan 5 – Mount Charles 2                        Pondhu 4 – Mount Charles 5


We had some great goals from George, Tineasha, Jude and Jasmine. All the children kept their spirits up and worked really well as a team. Sadly, Mount Charles did not qualify for the next round of the tournament. However, we are really pleased at coming 3rd out of 5 schools. The whole team played extremely well and kept smiling the whole time!!  The A team netball squad consisted of Gracie, George, Jude, Lilyah, Lizzy, Jasmine and Tineasha.


Netball away against Carclaze 4th October – A team – George, Lizzy, Jasmine, Gracie (C), Aleeah, Lilyah and Jude

Carclaze have a great A team and gave us a tough start to the game. We went into the third quarter 5 – 0 down. We put up a good fight in the third quarter, but unfortunately we couldn’t get any goals. In the final quarter, Carclaze managed to score 3 more goals, leaving the final score as 8 – 0 to Carclaze. It was a well deserved win, they gave us a tough game: we just couldn’t quite get it in the net and needed to get in front of their super speedy and tall players. Player of the match goes to Gracie.


B Team – Jess (C), Eva, Dexter, Owain, Katie, Ella, Charlie and Harry

This was a tricky game as the majority of the team had never played before. There was a lot to take on board as they remembered their positions and which way we were going as well as fighting the wind! The first quarter remained goalless. In the second quarter, Ella scored a fantastic goal, but unfortunately Carclaze managed to score two goals. In the third quarter, Jess managed to score a goal, meaning that the score was 2 – 2. We did a great job of moving the ball down the court but unfortunately we couldn’t get any goals in the final quarter. However, Carclaze scored three more goals, leaving the final score as Mount Charles 2 – Carclaze 5. Player of the match goes to Ella.


A team football – The team travelled to Carclaze school without a few first team regulars but excited and eager to represent the school. The game started well with Kevin setting up George for a chance. Eldon make some excellent stops in goal. A few defensive errors allowed Carclaze to grab 3 quick goals. After a quick chat with Mr Rees the team worked hard and continued to press hard for a goal. An excellent scoop by George getting himself through on goal but unable to beat the keeper. Carclaze looked dangerous on the break and scored two further goals. A great effort by the team. Well done to Treeve, Kevin, Eldon, Finlay and Jude for making their A team debuts. We will hope for a better result next time we play.  Team: Eldon, Jude, Finlay, Riley, Kevin, Treeve, George.  Year 3 & 4 Football – This Tuesday, the year 3 and 4 football team had their first match of the season, away to Carclaze. It was an exciting game with chances for both teams. Carclaze got off to the better start and quickly took a 1:0 lead. Mount Charles looked a little nervous and stood back a bit, allowing Carclaze to go on the attack. Stanley made some good saves and Ethan and Freddie started to make some tackles. Cody and Jayden marked the striker well and gradually, Mount Charles began to take control. After a few attempts, Tyler, finally managed to get the ball in the net to bring the scores level. Just before half time, there was some confusion from a Carclaze corner and the ball managed to slip past Stan. 2:1 to Carclaze. At half time, Stan and Freddie swapped positions and Reece came on in defense. We continued to dominate the game, with Jake making some great runs and passing the ball well. Ethan had two long range shots go wide, before Tyler scored again. Although I would have liked a win, the team showed real determination to come back twice and get a draw. Man of the match was Tyler. Well done year 3 and 4.

Team: Stanley, Reece, Cody, Jayden, Freddie, Jake, Ethan, Tyler

Tri Golf

On Friday 30th September our Tri Golf team competed in the Mid Cornwall Tri Golf Festival at Newquay Golf Club. The children had to score points at four different skill stations that involved chipping, putting and swinging a club. They had to score as many points as possible against the clock. When all the points were totalled up we finished fifth overall and although we didn’t qualify for the Cornwall Games Finals the children tried their very best and were good representatives for the school on the day. Well done to the girls and boys who took part.

Team: Lizzy, Caitlyn, Jasmin, Eva, Libby, Dexter, Jamie, Harry, Bobby and Jake.


House Cross Country

A super turnout from the Juniors on a beautiful day for running. Every runner who came out to take part can be proud of themselves and it was amazing to see the resilience from some of the children to complete the course and challenge themselves to keep going.  The top 5 runners in each race are listed below with their house colour and the house-points that will be added onto the weekly totals for them.  Thank you to all the runners who gave up their lunchtime to run, the adults who came out to help marshall and record results but also to the Year 6 children that helped to set-up and organise the event with us.

The Highwayman

Amelia (5RN) has been learning the poem, ‘The Highwayman’ and used this as the inspiration for this beautifully presented comic strip.


Miss Nile and Mrs Body were amazed to see something in the pictures they have never seen before – as well as the story of Bess and the Highwayman, their horses also fall in love.

Amelia followed this up with this diary account from Bess:

What superb work.  Well done Amelia!

Mixed Media Workshop

Five of our Year 5 Pupils (John, Millie, Holly, Ben and Jess) visited Penrice Academy to take part in a mixed media workshop. After designing their mythical beasts, they used a range of materials to create these wonderful works of art.
