Perry Wood are a bunch of Top Bananas!



Perry Wood is in the final of the UK Bananagrams Challenge and has the chance to win £1,000! However, we need your help over the next week to win!


Mrs Gauler has been running a lunchtime Bananagrams Club during Spring Term for the past three years. Bananagrams is a game that helps expand vocabulary and improve spelling, as well as encouraging children to love playing with words and letters. Club members played each other in a school tournament; the winner of this year’s tournament and the school “Top Banana” was Emily Kirkland in Year 5 – well done, Emily!


The 1,500 schools who took part in the national challenge were invited to enter a competition telling the Bananagrams company what it meant to them. Perry Wood’s Bananagrams Club members decided to enter a stop motion animation. The children directed and edited the movie themselves, giving up their lunchtimes during the last week of term. We are very proud that, as a result of their commitment and enthusiasm, Perry Wood was selected as one of three finalists!


The overall winner is determined via Facebook voting. The post that receives the most likes will be crowned Top Banana and win the grand prize of £1,000! Please follow to link and like Perry Wood’s entry to crown Emily the UK’s ultimate Top Banana!
