With the new National Curriculum putting added emphasis on spelling this year, the Bananagrams Challenge materials and games have been designed specifically to incorporate the new Key Stage 2 spelling lists and to add value to classroom learning.
The free-to-enter Challenge, open to 500 schools, invites children in years three, four, five and six to play a series of Bananagrams games with classmates. Schools find their champion who then competes in a series of online word-based games for one of 12 places at the Grand Final in London, in March 2015.
All finalists receive a Bananagrams goodie bag and the child crowned Top Banana wins a trophy and £500 for their school.
Each school to register receives a free Bananagrams Challenge Welcome Pack worth over £40 including two Bananagrams games and a copy of the brand new Collins Little Book of Bananagrams.
