    On Tuesday, our talented team of nine Year 6 boys took to the field in Daventry for an exciting cricket tournament. The morning started in spectacular fashion as we won our first two group games racking up lots of runs. We were thrilled to be announced as group winners and faced off against the other top teams. Despite a hard-fought effort, we narrowly lost our first game by just 4 runs and faced a tough final game where a few quick wickets led to our defeat. The boys showcased incredible resilience, fighting until the very end. Their skills on the field didn't go unnoticed, with many teachers praising their performance and sportsmanship. CCS finished an impressive 3rd out of 9 schools! The boys represented our school brilliantly and should be extremely proud of their achievements. Well done, CCS Year 6 Cricket Team!

    **Mental Health Awareness Week** This week taught us that even small movements can significantly boost our mental health. The NHS Mental Health Support Team brought this to life with fun dancing and breathing exercises for our Primary students on Wednesday. Meanwhile this week, our Secondary students and many staff members took on the Nature Trail challenge, clocking an impressive 2,000 kms with more being added at the end of day! Our Wellbeing Champions in years 7-9 took the initiative to understand why people might feel uncomfortable discussing mental health by running a comprehensive survey. Their findings will help us create a more open and supportive environment. A big thanks to The Lowdown, who came in on Tuesday with their stall and connected with many young people to share their fantastic support services. Let's continue to prioritise our mental health and support each other. #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek #Wellbeing

    Several of our Year 12 students took part in a Travel and Tourism adventure to London on Wednesday 8th May. Their first stop was the iconic Natural History Museum, where they delved into the world of cutting-edge technology transforming visitor attractions. From awe-inspiring animatronics to interactive exhibits, it was captivating to see the future of museum experiences. After a morning at the museum, they enjoyed lunch in Kensington Gardens, with the majestic Albert Hall nearby. It was the perfect time to recharge. And what's a trip to London without a visit to the legendary Harrods? Everyone immersed themselves in the hustle and bustle of one of the world's most famous department stores, soaking in the sights and sounds that make London a magnet for tourists worldwide. Throughout the day, the students demonstrated exemplary behaviour and enthusiasm, fully engaging with the industry and the endless possibilities it offers.

    Let's get cooking... pizza! Yesterday afternoon, a group of our Year 5 and 6 children enjoyed making tasty homemade pizzas, as part of our special after school club run by Mrs Honeywood and Mrs Robson. Kneading their own dough, chopping ingredients and hand shaping their pizza creations, the children had a fantastic time developing their cooking skills.
