A message from the Bananagrams organisers.

I received an email from the organisers of the Bananagrams Challenge:

 

All the children (and their families) had a really super day.  The Bananagrams team were just astounded by the level of skill and breadth of vocabuary that all the finalists showed.  In fact they were all so fast at playing the game that the day finished an hour ahead of schedule!

All the finalists were extremely good sports, congratulating their opponents if they didn't win and were all genuinely a credit to their schools.

Our worthy winner, the UK's first top banana, was 10-year-old Louis Webber from Amersham in Buckinghmashire.  I think everyone at the event will agree, he was a very worthy winnerwith quite mind-boggling ability to 'peel' at the speed of light!  Needless to say, all 12 finalists at the event did extremely well to get to the final - beating nearly16,000 school children for a place.

Lots of parents have asked us for copies of photos from the day, so I am pleased to be able to share with you a link to all the photos from the day.  Please feel free to download any of the photos in the link below:

The password is all lowercase with no spaces (I thought you might like that Pranav).

Good luck Pranav

Thank you for sharing the pictures Mr.Marland. It was an excellent opportunity for us to join Pranav for the Finals. We extremely enjoyed the momentum of the day.
All the 12 finalists were exceptionally brilliant. However, the winner was really challenging!
We are grateful for all the encouragement and support provided by you and Holtsmere End Junior School.
These challenges not only motivates the children, it also persuades parent/guardians to be part of it.
I hope our school will take part in all the oncoming challenges and wish for all the best.
