For the third year running, Year 5 and 6 have been competing in the Bananagrams Challenge to become our 'Top Banana'. Each year, the four classes hold preliminary rounds to establish the top eight players in each class. With the top eight players chosen, the competition began with 32 children, lots of spelling discussion and much dictionary searching.
This year produced our most tense final, with Isla H (5K) and Jacob C (6R) battling in a mammoth 45-minute game with both children left with just one letter each. Unfortunately for Jacob, his ‘Q’ was very tricky to place and Isla managed to slot her last letter into position to become our 'Top Banana'. Well done to everyone who took part!
