House Competitions

Summer Term 2016

Wow! What a superb competition again this school year, which was concluded with Sports Day in the beautiful sunshine.

The Autumn term, which included ten pin bowling, a penalty shoot-out, netball, skipping and a maths challenge, was won by Longmoor House. Longmoor were in the lead from the first week of the year and it looked like they could not be caught. Blackroot finished second, Bracebridge were third, with last year’s winners Wyndley fourth.

Archery, handball, a quiz, spelling and a new 'What’s in the Box?' event were held in the Spring term. The cold baked beans in the last box were well received by all of the brave competitors in the 'Whats in the Box?' event! Bracebridge had the most points in the term, followed by Longmoor, Blackroot and Wyndley.

The final term also had some new events, such as Mrs Elwell’s Maths Challenge and Active Noughts and Crosses. Both events were based on a running relay and the ability to use your thinking as fast as a flash! All competitors rose to the challenge and had ‘fun in the sun’.

The KS1 Sports Day was won by Longmoor and KS2 was won by Bracebridge. A new event involving a ball juggling and throwing event for the House Leaders was the highlight and was won by Zara, Joss, Betsy and Luke from Bracebridge.

The winner of the House Shield is the house with the most number of points for the whole year. The results were as follows:

  • 1st: Longmoor - 308 points
  • 2nd: Bracebridge - 289 points
  • 3rd: Blackroot - 258 points
  • 4th: Wyndley - 228 points

A huge well done to Longmoor House for winning the competition and for having their name engraved on the shield for the first time, following Bracebridge House in 2013/14 and Wyndley in 2014/15.

All of the Year 6 House Leaders must be congratulated for their commitment and hard work throughout the whole of the school year. They have certainly been wonderful ambassadors and shown great commitment and reliability. They have developed their leadership skills which we hope will be a very useful attribute as they leave us for their new school. The new House Leaders for 2016/17 have a hard act to follow!

A special mention must be given to Blackroot House for winning in Maths Challenge. We certainly know who can remember their times tables! Also, Tanaka Chiadzwa (2S) for his enthusiasm for all events and Miles McSheffrey for his excellent goalkeeping skills in the Penalty Shoot Out.

Longmoor achieved consistent results in all of the competitions in the Autumn term. They won the weekly Class House Points Competition seven times out of a possible fourteen and finished in second position three3 times! Well done to everyone in Longmoor for gaining house points and remembering to put them up on the board in their classroom.

The final results for the Autumn 2015 term were as follows:

  • 1st: Longmoor - 75 points
  • 2nd: Blackroot – 71 points
  • 3rd: Bracebridge – 61 points
  • 4th: Wyndley – 55 points

Each house held a competition to design a shield for the remainder of this school year. We had some wonderful entries from all year groups. However, the winners were:

The winner of a competition for those children in KS1 was Sam Watson (2S), who produced a wonderful design for Wyndley House.

Well done to everyone who entered, those that made the final and the children who won.

As we move into the Spring term, it will be interesting to see if the other Houses can catch Longmoor, or if Longmoor can extend their lead and take a step closer to winning the House Shield for the first time. We have events such as archery, a general knowledge quiz, handball, spelling and an obstacle race planned this term!

Well done to everyone who volunteered to be involved and those who competed for their house. All of the House Captains really value everyone’s support.

Remember: KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON SUPPORTING YOUR HOUSE!
