Word of Mouse mini-challenge winners

Thank you to all those who submitted an entry for the first Year 4 mini-challenge. It is really exciting to see displays celebrating your Gladiators experience in so many schools. Judging was  very difficult but we have selected winners and highly commended as follows:

The overall winner for an eye catching and interactive display (incorporating a bag of quotations for passers by to delve into) is Our Lady of Lourdes. Their teacher wrote, ‘The children throughly enjoyed creating their own display independently. They wanted to make it interactive so they included a bin bag(black mountain) that contained their favourite quotes. They have been encouraging other children in the class to pick them out and read them. Some of the children have read other James Patterson books and have included them as recommendations.‘.

Runners up:  Lathom for their oil pastel and watercolour interpretations of Isaiah’s wise words.

St Gregory the Great for their super photographs and for relating the quotations to real mice (and cats!)

St Mary’s Prittlewell for their very creative design

We are also awarding high commendation to Archbishop Sumner for incorporating their display into a mini-lending library of gladiator books past and present; Sedgley Park for their very colourful display and gladiatorial representation of their group – complete with gladiator helmets, La Fontaine for their very neatly designed display, Bellbird for their brilliant ideas about the function of the quotations within the story, and last but by no means least to Ashley and Oscar at Springfield Primary for presenting their favourite quotations on behalf of their group.

All schools mentioned will received a copy of one of James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein’s House of Robots series and the overall winners will be getting the full set! Thank you to Penguin Random House.

Well done to one and all. We are excited to see your entries for Malkin Moonlight later this month. We hope you enjoy the book.
