Birchwood's House Competitions!

House Captains Chatter

It is nearly the end of our school year, and the House Captains and I have had the job of counting the final scores for our House Captain competitions. We have thoroughly enjoyed coming up with these activities, and there have been some superb entries! From the Autumn-themed poetry to the Lego constructions, a huge amount of effort and enthusiasm went into these and we would like to thank you for supporting your children with them.

After carefully counting the house points, which have been accumulating all year, the winner for 2021-2022, with 614 points, is Goodere! Chetwynd came in second with 552 points, Morris in third with 505 points and Chaytor in fourth with 473 points.

A huge congratulations to Goodere house and best of luck to everyone for next year’s competitions!

Mr Hammersley and the Birchwood House Captains.

House Competition - The Christmas Challenge
Trudy, our school Christmas tree, needs your help!
Miss Trudy Tree has packed her bags and has started on her long journey from the North Pole to spend her Christmas Holidays at Birchwood.  Unfortunately, Trudy did not have space in her suitcase to bring all her decorations with her so she is looking to all our brilliant Birchwood children to help her by making decorations for her branches.
When you have finished your creation, remember to label it with your name, class and house name/colour.
Each 'Christmas Decoration' will count towards your House Total.
The House Totals will be read out in assembly on Thursday 6th December.  The House with the highest total number of 'Christmas Decorations' will win the House Christmas Challenge Trophy and 4 House Points!
