Inter-house Competition

To celebrate the end of term 1 here at Milton we organised an Inter-house competition. To cater for everyone we tried to include various elements so every child had the opportunity to be successful.

All of this week we had a secret manners challenge operating. Staff were on the lookout for children who showed good manners (but we didn’t tell the children) and awarded points for this. A special mention must go to Leo in Primary 1 who scored 40 points all on his own for his house – Kilmuir.

Each class also produced a piece of artwork which was judged anonymously by Mrs Sellar and Mrs Martin. There were house points awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each class.

The winners of Miss Robinson’s Autumn trees and hedgehogs were:

1st – Alexis

2nd – Shamaya

3rd – Charlotte

The winners of Mrs Christie’s patterned Autumn leaves were:

1st – Kodeah

2nd – Kerrigan

3rd – Norbert

The winners of Miss Crew’s pumpkins were:

1st – Isla

2nd – Kaci

3rd – JJ

We weren’t organised enough to take a photograph of the winners but here’s some finished articles from the classes.

Miss Johnston also did a random uniform check throughout the week. She noted down who was wearing and awarded points accordingly.

This afternoon saw us take part in various sporting activities including: shooting baskets, trying to beat Miss Crew the goalie, throwing the beanbags in the bucket, timed adventure trail, one legged balance, going under/over with a wet sponge and completing a lap of the pitch. House points were awarded based on the numbers scored, the team who took the shortest time and the 1st boy/girl from each year group who completed the lap of the pitch.

Lap of the Pitch winners were:

P7 – Alan & Kaci

P6- Noah & Zofia

P5 – Christopher & Demi

P4 – Mason & Maisie

P3 – Leighton & Lois

P2 – Alfie & Amelia

P1 – Leo & Amy

A special mention must also go to Lois and Eilidh who were the last two children (apart from P6s & 7s) who were able to stand on one leg for 7 minutes for their houses! I only managed to snap a couple of pictures throughout the challenge.

At the end of the day we totalled up the points, taking into account Fruity Friday, SHANARRI Superstars and Hall of Fame awards for the term. The scores on the doors were:

1st – Balnagown with 1000 points.

2nd – Kilmuir with 863 points.

3rd – Logie with 702 points.

Congratulations to Balnagown who will receive their reward next terms when they return providing Mrs Dunnett approves their choice. We will be sure to let you know what it is!!
