Eureka Primary School

Eureka - A wonderful, enriching learning journey where we are nurtured, inspired and challenged to be adventurers, thinkers, explorers, investigators and enquirers for life.

Competitions

Having listened to the feedback from our recent Home-Learning survey that suggested that many of the children would like to have a greater variety in their tasks and see their work shared on a wider platform we have been away and created the Eureka Competition Calendar for the second Spring half term. Each week there will be a small competition starting each Monday and ending on the Sunday for the children to enter if they wish to do so (these competitions are completely optional). Each week there will be an EYFS/Key Stage 1 winner and a Key Stage 2 winner.

 

Entries should be emailed to competitions@eureka.derbyshire.sch.uk by Sunday 6 p.m. at the latest.

 

Please put the following information in your email: Child’s first name, second initial and class. For example: John S – Explorers.

 

The winner will then be announced on Monday evening at 5:30 p.m. and a certificate and prize presented to the winner.   All entries will be displayed on our school website under ‘News and Events’ and then ‘Competitions’.

 

This week's (1st March - 8th March) competition is linked to World Book Day!  If you are in Key Stage One or Early Years you need to draw or make your favourite character from a book, if you are in Key Stage 2 you need to make an advertising poster trying to sell your favourite book to the public - why should people go out and buy this book?  What is special about it?  Be persuasive!

Photography Competition Winners and Runners Up:

 

EYFS/Key Stage 1 Winner:  Jessica W (Thinkers)

EYFS/Key Stage 1 Runner Up:  Ayda T (Adventurers)

 

Key Stage 2 Winner:  Ted H (Investigators)
Key Stage 2 Runner Up: Sofia S  (Enquirers)


The winners and runners up have prizes and certificates waiting for them at the front desk outside the school office from tomorrow morning (Tuesday).

Well done to EVERYONE who took part - the standard of the entries absolutely blew me away and was one of the hardest competitions I have ever had to judge!  Everyone of you could have won for different reasons.  Real thought went in to the composition of your shots, there was some really creative use of light and props, the colours were beautiful and there was some great technical ability on show as well!   Please enjoy the slideshow below accompanied by a piece of music that sums up the entries perfectly - Spring by Vivaldi!
