Team Challenge Day

The team challenge day was a complete success! The children all had to work in their house teams to earn points towards earning the house cup.

Year 5 and 6 had a selection of challenges in the morning and in the afternoon all the children from F2-Year 6 joined in the fun! This involved them working with children from different year groups that they may not normally talk to. The teams learnt invaluable communication and team work skills.

The points from the morning and afternoon events were added together and the results were….

1st – Phoenix
2nd – Dragon
3rd – Griffin
4th – Chimera
