Virtual House Competition #2 - weekly Taskmaster!

'The Taskmaster' returns to Shirley Junior School for the final summer term of Problem Solving - get your brains thinking outside of the box and get creative when solving the tasks set by your taskmasters (your house captains!) each week. For the next four weeks, tasks will be uploaded here on a Monday morning and we ask that all entries are sent to by the following Saturday. A simple mash up of entries and the top 5 winners will be added to the website alongside the new task each week. 

RULES - Get your adults permission, Be safe, Do not break any rules or laws, Get creative and most importantly - have fun. (ALL tasks are open to interpretation!)

Every entry earns 5 hp for their house team. The chosen 'top 5' by the task masters earn; 1st 200 hp, 2nd 100 hp, 3rd 75hp, 4th 50 hp and 5th 25 hp.

The Challenge: A virtual relay!
Each house to create a relay video (just like the toilet rolls being kicked from person to person!) of children passing an item of their house colour after doing some form of active exercise.

The Rules:
1. Videos must be no longer than 6 seconds long (or we could end up with a SUPER long relay!!!!).
2. Wear your house colours if possible and pass any object the colour of your house too.
3. The object should come INTO your right hand, you do some exercise with it and then it LEAVES your left hand. 
4. Send your video (with your adults permission) to the email by Monday 25th May.
5. Each entry automatically receives 5 house points and extra points for creativity are also up for grabs (watch the scores increase on the house page!).
6. Have fun, enjoy and may the house with the longest relay win! :)
