Y6 took part in the CHSW £20 challenge

£20 challenge

They decided to run a tuck shop . Each group planned a tuck shop item, costed ingredients to ensure maximum profit, bought and replenished ingredients and even designed posters to advertise their stalls. The rest of the classes were invited to the break time tuck shop. At the end of the 3 days, having repaid the start up donation to CHSW we raised an amazing £220 for the charity! Congratulations Y6 for taking up this challenge and to the rest of the school for supporting the delicious tuck shop.

Rainbow Run 2016

June 26

Miss Teixeira, Mrs Lean and Mrs Lobban accompanied members of the running club to RAF St Mawgan to partake in the Rainbow Run. With great excitement, we met dressed in white for registration which included a pair of sunglasses.


At 1 o’clock we joined 1600 other runners on a 5k run, during which we were sprayed with paint. We all ran the whole distance and had an amazing experience!
