An exciting new award scheme
Since January 2016, Merlin Top has been involved in an excitingand engaging opportunity called
i -challenge. i-challenge is specifically designed activitiesthat motivate and engage the children whilst learning skills for life.
The children have been up to all sorts from making paperplanes and canoeing to going on residentials. They'velearnt ample amounts of information, conquered fears and believed inthemselves. I'm sure you've heard many wonderful and exciting stories!
On Friday 8th July 2016, we are introducing i-challenge day within school! This replaces sports day with fun filled activities for everyone to enjoy. In the morning the children will get to go on exciting activities, from inflatable football and assault courses to trampolines and wall climbing equipment. There's something for everyone.
In the afternoon, parents/carers will be invited to come into school to get a chance to complete activities in the i -challenge booklets. These involve challenges such as beat the goalie, natural art painting, treasure hunts and many more. You will take your child around the different classrooms and with help from our enthusiastic teachers and teaching assistants complete many activities.
Below are links to some pictures to show you what our Year 5's have been getting up to.
