Remaining Competitions for this Academic Year


Key Stage

Closing Date

Online Safety Graphics Poster. Using any software or application, entrants may show rules but as these were presented at the start of the year, an illustrated example reinforcing a particular element of online safety would be expected, in favour of merely reproducing the rules in a list. View the competition information and guidelines for full details.     KS 1 End of 1st half of Summer Term
Online Safety Comic Strip. To create a comic book, or strip, that promotes Online Safety. There are a number of really good free online Comic Strip websites that can be used to create entries. Alternatively, software and applications which may already be held in school can be used. View the competition information and guidelines for full details.      KS 2 End of 1st half of Summer Term
Scratch Game. To create a simple digital game. Although, this competition has been planned with Scratch in mind, we welcome entries using other coding applications such as: Kodu,  2Simple 2Code, Scratch Jnr and Hopscotch for iPads. View the competition information and guidelines for full details.      KS 2 1st of July 2022
