STAR pupils gathered at Riverside, where they designed, build and then battled remote control K'Nex Battle Bots!
You've heard of The X Factor? Well how about The P Factor? Pupils at Riverside School, Tadcaster were set the task of learning a poem off by heart and then performing for their own class (poetry learning and recital are part of the new national curriculum).
Winners from each class then performed in the Grand Final for the whole school and the judges. Entries were varied with poems from Wordsworth to some cheeky self-composed limericks.
Pictured here are the winners, Daisy and Evie-Rose with their prizes. The competition was such a success that next year it is planned to become an inter-schools event.
Headteacher, Ian Yapp, said ‘as ever, I am delighted by the response in our school community – so many pupils and families joined in this challenge. I had great fun being involved in the judging, delighting in how much effort and energy our pupils gave to reciting their poems.’
