The BANANAGRAMS Challenge was set up to provide KS2 pupils with an enjoyable and interactive way to develop language skills as they play and learn with words. Fully created by the makers of the best-selling word game BANANAGRAMS, the Challenge was open to pupils aged 8-11 (years 4, 5 and 6) and was FREE to enter our School.
From February, our Year 6 children were participating and playing BANANAGRAMS, in groups of four.
The winners of each group then played each other, two players at a time, in straightforward elimination rounds. This continued until our school had one outright winner – our Top Banana!
Once we had found our school’s Top Banana, we had to submit their name and photo to the Bananagrams competition, along with a short paragraph telling them why our school enjoyed Going Wild With Words during the Banangrams School Challenge! In April the Bananagram Team will choose the top 3 submissions and make them available for public vote on social media. When the voting closes at the end of April, the school with the most votes will win £1,000! There will be additional prizes for schools with the longest word, the most number of pupils playing and the best-decorated classroom!
