Exceptional Explorers Competition

Calling all Exceptional Explorers!

We have an exciting competition launching this Summer term and we’d love all of our now>press>play schools to get involved.

Earn your Exceptional Explorer badge by going on a now>press>play audio adventure, recapping your Experience in a written or visual piece of work and win the chance of being published in our Exceptional Explorers Scrapbook.

Think scrapbook, travel journal, diary entries… the possibilities are endless! Just have fun, be creative & explore.

What is the prize?

1st Prize – your work will be published in our Exceptional Explorers Scrapbook and you will receive a physical copy to show all your classmates, friends and family. Your teacher will receive a copy, too!

All entries – all participants will receive our brand new Exceptional Explorers badge.
