'Name the room' competition, by Mrs Bailey

Date: 7th Sep 2017 @ 5:21pm

Mr Jones, our Site Maintenance Officer, has done a wonderful job of renovating a disused area in school into a quiet, working environment. 
In assembly today we launched a school competition to name this room. The room will be used for 1:1 work, small group work, music tuition, reading sessions, social skills sessions, a place for teacher's to work during their PPA time etc.


With this in mind, we are giving our children the opportunity to name the room. We are looking for a catchy, creative name which embraces the purpose of the room and promotes a positive feel to the room.

 

Entry forms are outside Year 1 classroom. Entries do not need to be completed on official entry forms as long as they contain the following information:

Child's name:

Child's year group:

Suggested name for the room:

Why do you feel this is an appropriate name

 

 

Please post entries in the box outside Year 1 classroom. All entries should be in by the end of the school day on Friday 22nd September.
