The Keilty Challenge…Year 6…24th January

The Keilty Challenge…Year 6…24th January

The Keilty Challenge has been a feature of Y6 from time immemorial.  Points are awarded for many praiseworthy actions: kindness, brilliance, achievement, progress, exceptional intelligence, clever vocabulary etc.  The class aim to earn – between them – over 32 points in a week.  When this target was first met (a difficult enough feat) the agreed prize was a lesson in the school forest.  A second successful week (even more unusual) earned an extra lesson in the computing suite.  The third time 32 points was exceeded (rarer than hens’ teeth) the children watched a movie of their choice (it certainly wouldn’t’ve been mine).  Unbelievably, the Keilty Challenge was won for a fourth time (an event unprecedented in living memory) and the prize was a pyjama day.  Imagine the disappointment of the pyjama-clad Y6s when lessons proceeded as normal, though many pupils were convinced that wearing pyjamas for school served to aid workrate, concentration and attainment.
