Winner of a National Design Competition

.

Congratulations to Year 3 pupil Imaan Shah who was presented with a new Nintendo DS and Animal Crossing game for coming third in a national competition to design a party outfit fit for a mayor.

The competition was linked to Year 3 and Year 4 PSHCE lessons on ‘being a good citizen’ where pupils were asked to think about the design of a new ‘Happy Town’. Acting as mayor of this new town, pupils had to make decisions about where to spend the public money; did they need a swimming pool, a new library or more schools? They had to consider how they would run the town, including what laws would they need to introduce.

Children were then encouraged to enter the national competition in their own time by thinking about the parties the Mayor was likely to attend and designing the most suitable outfit.
