School webteam: December 2015
Well done to all those children who entered our Dragons Den challenge. The designs were all very well thought out and it was clear that the children had all considered the environment and recycling as well as the practicality and appearance of their products. We were impressed by the decorative giant snowman made from plastic drinks cups and decorated with articles of clothing. We were thrilled by the innovative games designed including Ten Pin bowling, an original version of noughts and crosses using milk bottle tops and also a game which involved manoeuvring a marble into yoghurt pots of different values. There were creative and intricate imaginative play worlds including an Oil Rig Spy Platform and a Mighty Fort made from various old boxes and a very useful bird feeder which was beautifully decorated in a festive theme which was made from a plastic bottle with a hole cut out and filled with bird food and a pencil placed through it for the birds to stand on.
The quality of the entries was so high that it was a very difficult and demanding task for the team of Dragon judges. The Dragons were all very sensible, they asked pertinent questions and considered carefully the recycling theme and the originality, practicality and overall appearance of the products. Congratulations to all who took part. The Mighty Fort achieved third place due to its intricate design, second place was awarded to the creative, imaginative Oil Rig Spy Platform and first place was achieved by the seasonal and functional festive bird feeder.
