Students take part in Trust competition
The Academy recently took part in a Trust maths and DT competition and collaboration day at Oakley Vale Primary School.
The day was open to students in Years 1-4 with four children from each year group attending. Year 4 took part in a maths competition, which saw them complete a mixture of different challenges throughout the day, including a multiplication trail and using tangrams – a Chinese puzzle consisting of seven shapes - to create Christmas shaped pictures.
Years 1 and 2 took part in the DT competition. They had five different Christmas challenges to complete both in teams and as individuals, which included making a Christmas tree using sequence, making a cracker placing a prize inside and joining it together and designing and icing a Christmas biscuit.
Each challenge scored the teams points, which were added together at the end of the day to determine the winners of the Trust trophies.
Beanfield Primary successfuly won the maths challenge and Peckover Primary won the DT competition.
Prinicipal Jo Fallowell said ‘All the students that went on the trip had great fun. They love taking part in the Trust days as they get to meet up with the children from the other schools.
‘Thank you to Oakley Vale for hosting the event.’
