Haydon@Home Challenges Week 3

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 weeks challenges set by our Year Teams: 
(Week 3 - 25/01/21) 

P.S - Students can also enter other year team challenges (if they wish) & Staff are also welcome to participate!

Yr 8 - Emoji Your Favourite Fictional Book 

This week’s challenge is to represent your favourite fictional book as a series of emoji. Many

of you will have taken part in quizzes that ask you to guess the story from the emoji and now I would like you to create your own.

Step 1: Choose your favourite fictional story (one entry max from each student) – be true to yourself here – no easy options.

Step 2: Decide whether you are going to create your emoji sequence for the title of the story or try to retell the whole of the story in emoji form

Step 3: Select and order your series of emoji

Step 4: Take a screen shot of your emoji sequence, ensure that add the title of your favourite story (so that I can check your accuracy) and upload it to SATCHEL:ONE (you may wish to paste your screenshot to a document before submission which is also fine)

The deadline for submissions is Thursday 28th January at 3.00pm

Winners will be chosen based on the following elements: Creativity, Style, Detail and Originality

I look forward to seeing your submissions on Satchel:ONE before next Thursday!
