Competition time!

4th October 2018

Our children can take part in two fabulous competitions this term!


Wooden spoon competition

Children can decorate a wooden spoon (either from home or purchase one from the academy for 50p). The spoons will be put on display and judged on 22nd October.  There will be a prize for the winner and a prize for that child’s house.

This competition costs 20p to enter. Monies raised will buy produce for local foodbank.


'Parliament at Christmas' card competition
