TRIUMPHS THIS YEAR ARE:

 

Masterchef.

  • We had a fabulous morning, preparing fairy cakes, cornflake cakes, rock road, chocolate cheesecakes and pull apart cakes, in order to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. 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 3 made gooey, chocolate hedgehogs and cornflake cakes. 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. Well done Water. We raised lots of money for MacMillan Cancer Support and got to make and eat lots of cake at the same time...we came in at 2nd place but the children were winners all round!

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 4th.

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 Water and Earth houses for coming in at joint 1st place.
