Taskmaster week 4: Take a photo of the oldest thing

Home » News » Taskmaster: Oldest thing

More from our #classtaskmaster challenge against other schools and groups. The children had to take a photo of the oldest thing in our school.

After a lot of searching and debate, Izzy and Madison settled on the scholarship board in Base 4, dating back to 1894. Nathan, Marloe and Ellie chose an old photo of the school from 1903 from the back of the hall, whereas Lola and Dom thought outside the box, taking a picture of the bricks in the old part of the school, dating back to 1876 when the school was built. Great lateral thinking teams!

I was impressed with how well the children used the...

We've spent a lot more time than normal inside this week in Base 1 thanks to all the wet weather, but this has meant that we've had a chance to explore our new 'construction zone'. We have created a space where buildings and models can be kept on display when they are finished. To earn the right to do this the children must write a sentence or a label about their model and display...
