The Classroom Challenge returns with some exciting opportunities for your school

Aside from the fantastic Classroom Challenge competition, your school will also receive sticker albums, sticker packets and a competition guide, which you can use within your school. We have had some amazing feedback from teachers from across England on the benefits of receiving these goodies and entering our competitions – here are some of our favourites:

“Although we didn’t win, our children have absolutely loved taking part. The cards have gone down a storm and I’m constantly getting children coming up to me to show me which cards they’ve got.”

“The cards have gone down very well in school. We had a few spares left over from the ones originally sent, which have made a fantastic motivational tool and prizes for outstanding work.”

“Thanks for this year’s competition – my class absolutely loved taking part. I was just wondering if there will be any future competitions coming up?”

Don’t delay – register today. Simply click here or follow the link at the bottom of the page and enter your details – you will receive a notification if you have been selected to receive these exciting goodies and Classroom Challenge forms for your school. The competition will run throughout January and we’re already excited to see the entries we’ll receive. The standards have been incredibly high in previous competitions and we love to see how creative school children in England can be!

The latest Classroom Challenge was won by Nia from Year 5 at Brunswick Primary School in Sussex, after she created a fantastic team crest. Brunswick Primary School will now be presented with a cheque for £2,000 plus some fantastic prizes for Nia during an assembly hosted by Panini in the coming weeks.

The level of entries for the crest design competition was incredibly impressive – you can take a look at some more of our favourite designs below:

Panini also recently visited Darley Dale Primary School in Derbyshire to present Holly from Year 3 with her prizes following her winning entry in the ‘design a football shirt’ Classroom Challenge, run earlier in 2019.

The ESFA are delighted to be able to share these Panini resources with primary schools in England and will be revealing the theme of this Classroom Challenge competition in the coming weeks.
