This term's competition kicks off with the question...

Should 10-year-olds have a mobile phone?

Scotney will debate this against Bodiam on Wednesday and Arundel will debate it against Hever on Thursday.
The following week will see Scotney take on Arundel on Wednesday and Hever against Bodiam on Thursday.  In the final week it will be Bodiam against Arundel (Wednesday) and Scotney against Hever (Thursday).
 

TERM 3 CHESS COMPETITION

The inter-house chess competition came to a gripping conclusion with the house champions playing some terrific chess in a four-way showdown.  Huge congratulations to Harry for representing Bodiam so brilliantly and competing against some of the oldest children in the school in order to reach the final.  We have very high hopes for future years and firmly believe that Harry will be a champion of the future!

Check out the Arundel page for lots of fabulous pictures of our champions in action!

TERM 1 OPAL OUTDOOR 'WORKING TOGETHER' CHALLENGE

Whenever a play leader sees an example of someone utilising the OPAL equipment well, tidying up well or supporting another child, then they are given a point.  The house captains have been encouraged to "rally their troops"! and at the end of the challenge, the house with the most points will be announced the winner.

Lots of points were given out and it was great to see everyone working so well together.  Congratulations to Arundel which was the winning house this term.
