Oryx House - KS 1 to KS 2

GREENInterhouse encourages friendly competition and a sense of community across the school. Pupils are grouped into 4 house teams. These are Red, Green, Yellow and Blue. Each pupil is placed in a house when they start school and remains a member of this team throughout their time at the school. Siblings are placed in the same house team. House captains from Year 3 are elected and encouraged to provide positive leadership to the children in their house. On Sports Days the houses compete against each other and the cup is awarded to the winning team.


The system aims to encourage a real sense of pride and achievement. It fosters community spirit and gives the children an opportunity to contribute to something bigger, which involves children for all year groups. Interhouse competitions are exciting events designed to give pupils the opportunity to experience competitive sport. There are 4 Interhouse activities during the year, each designed to allow the pupils to use the skills they have been learning in PE within a challenging and competitive environment, with the aim to score as many points as they can for their house. Each event is fiercely contested and winners announced during assemblies.


In KS1 the children are awarded house points for academic excellence and effort in daily lessons and when displaying exemplary behaviour, kindness and respect towards each other.  The house captains calculate the number of house points awarded throughout each week and then a trophy is presented to the overall house winner every Thursday during the Key Stage 1 assembly.  A healthy competitive team spirit prevails! 

In KS1 pupils take part in Scatter Ball, Football Skills, Target Games and Sports Day.
