TRIUMPHS THIS YEAR ARE:

 

Masterchef.

  • We had a very sticky start to our challenge where Year 3 were making chocolate rice crispy cakes and chocolate hedgehogs, Miss Phillips had not heard of these before and was slightly worried. However, no animals were harmed in the making of these chocolatey treats. We melted chocolate, golden syrup, butter and marshmallows to create our delicious goodies and then left them to cool. Each house worked within their year groups, in smaller house groups and everyone contributed to their year groups charity stall. Years 1 and 2 decorated cupcakes using butter icing, fondant icing, sprinkles and chocolate drops. Year 4 made their own cupcakes and decorated these with butter icing. Year 5 made delicious chocolate cheesecakes and Year 6 made chocolatey rocky roads! The children had a fantastic time and made some absolutely delicious treats. These went down a storm on the playground the next day. Fire house were absolutely brilliant and made an estimated 400 chocolatey cakes in Year 3 which raised a lot of money for Macmillan Cancer Support whilst being able to enjoy some treats at the same time! Although we didn't win overall, we came 3rd, Fire were definite winners in my eyes! Go Fire House!

Christmas Craft Challenge.

  • This term's House challenge was a Christmas Craft challenge. The children spent the morning creating different Christmas decorations, including baubles, Christmas trees and stars. They produced Christmas card designs and New Year calendars with glitter everywhere! The three best designs per class were picked, with points being earned for each house. The children were amazingly creative and the eventual winners were Fire and Ice.

Problem Solving.

  • Children working online and in school were set four problem solving activities. For each one successfully completed a point was awarded. Each child could get a maximum of four points which went straight to their house. It was wonderful to see so many creative entries. From recycled boats to how many star jumps you could do in one minute. It was clear all the children had a fun day. Well done everyone, we came 2nd.

Art Challenge.

This term's house challenge was the Art Challenge. The children created a piece of art work independently. Each year group had a different theme, with some year groups also producing 3D work. Year 1 created pictures of flowers (Agapanthus and Hyacinths) using finger painting. Year 2 created a painted animal picture in the style of pointillism, they used coloured paints and brushes to make the dots. Year 3 looked at pop art images and recreated them in the colourful style of Andy Warhol using different art materials. Year 4 created geometric patterns using overlapping circles, which were very effective. Year 5 created an underwater aquarium, based on their upcoming Mysteries of the Deep topic. The children used perspective to create a 3D effect for their artwork. Year 6 created tonal images using sketch pencils, they focused on the theme of crowns and also linked this to their RE focus. All the children did their very best and it was clear that fun was had by all. Four winners from each class were picked, based on the quality, effort and creativity of their work. Winners earned points for their houses. Well done to Fire house for coming in at joint 2nd place.
