Monthly Challenge

So, here is the news from the last Summer term challenge.  A very well done to Persephone in Year 3        who is a Star challenger as she completed all three challenges.  There were some lovely posters relating to Summer and what it means and there were several children who showed their knowledge of the flags, so a very well done all!

For September, we again have one star challenger…. Caitlin in Year 4.   I would also like to say congratulations to Joshua (Year 1) and Raef (Year 3) who completed two of the challenges.  Well done as well to those children who made words from ‘challenge’.

I am very pleased to say that Charlie D in Year 3 has set a challenge for you all and wins himself house points.  Here are this month’s challenges


  • Charlie’s challenge; Create your own board game; design it on no more than an

    A4 piece of paper - be as imaginative and creative as you like. 

  • Shape; Make some shapes from lolly sticks, toothpicks, straws or card and playdoh or

    blue/white tack.  They can be 3D or 2D

  • I wonder … What makes thunder?

Enjoy and I hope to get more challenges back from more children than before, so please get busy!


Happy challenging!

Mrs Elaine Dicocco


Don’t forget, we would be very excited if your child(ren) could set some of the challenges.  All entries are put in the Challenge Box in the Hall. Every child who enters into the challenge will be awarded a Bright Ideas certificate and a small prize by Mrs Dicocco during our celebration assemblies.
