Forget Fortnite: conker contest grips Frampton Cotterell Primary School

YOUNGSTERS at Frampton Cotterell C of E Primary School have come together to take part in one of the most traditional autumn challenges.

More than 300 pupils, from reception to Year 6, at recently took part in the school's ninth annual conker competition.

After several rounds youngsters at the school in Rectory Road sat down to watch a tense and keenly-contested final, which was won by a Year 5 pupil.

 

Head teacher Peter Barnard said: "We love our whole school annual conker tournament. It is part of our children's 'bucket list' as we believe they should all have the opportunity to play during their primary years.

"It is another fine example of what makes our school such a special place to learn in and we all can't wait to see our winner defend his title next year."

Frampton Cotterell C of E Primary will be holding two open mornings for prospective reception parents on Friday November 8 and Monday November 18 at 9.15am.
