Haydon@Home Challenges Week 2
Given we now have an extended period of time ahead for remote learning, we have re-introduced the Haydon@Home weekly challenges. It is a chance to help promote the school culture and also give students some fun tasks to complete aside from all their live lessons.
This time we have changed it slightly with each Year Team setting their own challenges for their specific year groups.
Please see a list of this week's challenges set by our Year Teams:
(Week 2 - 18/01/21)
P.S - Students can also enter other year team challenges (if they wish) & Staff are also welcome to participate!

Yr 8 - Climb a landmark
Haydon@Home Challenge – Climb a landmark by Mrs Phull – Due 21/01/21 at 3pm
Is there a landmark that you’ve always wanted to visit… well now you can… in a way. It has been inspiring to see numerous people challenging themselves in their own homes to walk a certain distance like Captain Tom Moore or in some cases climb a certain height.
We want you to pick a landmark and climb the equivalent height of it up your own stairs in a 1 week.
The deadline for entries is Thursday 21st January at 3pm
All of the information that you need to be able to complete the challenge can be found by clicking this link.
Please be aware that by entering the competition you are giving permission for your entry to be shared in my next newsletter.
I look forward to seeing your uploaded submissions on Satchel:ONE!
Haydon@Home Challenge – Climb a Landmark:
The winner will all receive a certificate upon their return to school.
I have selected one winner this week and that is Aryan Vaja in 8GKP – Aryan completed all workings out and climbed 41 flights of his staircase a day to climb the equivalent height of Mount Tianmen (1,519 m) which is affectionately known as The Stairway to Heaven. I think I must take this opportunity to apologise to Aryan’s parents as I am sure that all carpet on their stairs will now need to be replaced.
Well done Aryan!
