Our winner was...Molly for making an amazing peg doll Ariel from The Little Mermaid

Dahl 3/4 Class

Our competition was to redesign our favourite book covers, with the option to design our own original if we wanted. It was very difficult to choose a winner but we went with the most original design, especially as we were very taken with the name 'The Hope of a Balloon and a Rainbow'.


Our winner was Saliha!


Dickens Class

Walliams Class

Our class competition was to design an original book cover with title. It proved to be such a difficult decision for our judges that we had two winners! Amelia designed a positive affirmation book 'Love Yourself' based on our recent work in class and Ruby's book 'A Boy Called Hope' was inspired by hope for the future. Well done to everyone that took part. Extra team points all round.

Morpurgo Class

Our class competition was to create a story scene or a character using every day objects. Our winners were Tyler T with Skullduggery and Riley S. with his Diorama of Gangsta Granny. Well done to everyone who entered something you will be rewarded with generous team points.
