Mr. Lindop: July 2019
Our final week of Taskmaster this week was a hotly contested one!
Our first task was to write an epic story in 50 words or less. Some wonderful creations in a short space of time from our Taskers, but it was Nathan, Ellie and Marloe who just pipped the others with their story for following the beginning, middle and end structure and having some great description.
Then it was outside for task 2, involving kicking a rugby ball the length of the football field, whilst holding hands with team-mates. We had such a good laugh with this task and the results were so close that we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and mix the teams up for another go.
The final task was a scavenger hunt for things to spell out the word "TASKMASTER". A huge 10 points on offer for the final task of the term, one for each item beginning with the correct letter. It was fantastic to see some of the lateral thinking that started to come into this from all the teams, including a "kick" for K, socks being taken off for S and even borrowing some children from The Nest for some other letters. I was really impressed too with how the Taskers were happy to join other teams to help spell out their words too — some really good friendship and support on show.
In the end, we totted up the scores for the whole term. There were only 9 points between 1st and last place, which shows how competitive the club has been. In the end, it was Izzy who won, with 47 points.
Well done to all the Taskers for taking part!
