In third place were Olivia,
Second place was taken by
And the very popular winners for 2011 were Rebecca Standring and James Loughran.
Mrs Wilson had a few words to say to us.
"Thank you for all the presents you have given me. I want to ask you to BELIEVE. Believe in Father Christmas; believe that BBEC is the best school in the world and believe in your self".
To round off a fantastic morning we watched a video of people wishing us "Merry Christmas" and even saw the old head teacher Mr Davies .

There was much tension in the air at the half way point with number 18 proving an unlucky number for many. 100 people were quickly whittled down to just 50 as numbers ... 33...77...75... and...31 were pulled out of the bag.
With just 30 contestants left in with a chance, Mr Clitheroe cranked up the tension and then when just 17 students were still standing we were down to the final round.
All the remaining contestants headed out to the front of the stage, were allocated the numbers 1-17, and waited nervously for the winning number to be drawn.
When number 1was pulled from the bag THE WINNER ... JAKE could barely contain his excitement. What a great Christmas he is going to have!

Don't ask me why but each year at the Talent Show we have a staff v pupil competition to see who the best shots are with a netball.
Grace Sim Year 7 took the first shot for the pupils but unfortunately missed (the net is very high!)
Next up was Mrs Boardman who sadly had to try her luck handicapped by a blindfold. Guess what? She missed!
Next up was Katie Cooper in year 8 who also missed.
Ok would any one get a point? Megan from Year 9 tried her luck and was first to score but would this be the last point of the competition? No, a year 10 student netted the ball to take the students into the lead 2-0. Mr Marquis tried to rescue a point for the staff but shot over the net - to much applause from the audience. Hard luck teachers. Better luck next year!

Next Laura Oldfield and Kirsty Brocklehurst sang 'Chasing Cars' in a brilliant duet with Laura's sweet high voice and Kirsty's relaxing deep voice filling the hall with a wonderful feeling!
Singing Count On Me, Habeeba Shaikh wowed the crowd whose applause rang all around the sports hall. Oliver Garmston7H declared her "amazing" and rated the performance 8/10. " I would love to hear it again," he concluded.
Next on stage were Angelina and Krishna dancing. No sooner had they started than the crowd went wild. Their dancing totally changed the mood in the room. Jake Dean of 7H said ''They are outstanding. They moved so gracefully. I give that performance 10/10."

As soon as the bell went for the end of the school term, I rushed home. The moment I got home I got changed into my pyjamas , I sat down on my brown leather sofa with fluffy cushions, turned on the telly and curled up. Waking up to the sound of the birds tweeting and the sunshine in my eyes, was the best feeling ever, knowing that I could enjoy the rest of the day in the sun with my friends and family. Saturday didn’t go how I planned, I spent the whole day doing all my homework! Saturday night was the best part of the day, snuggled up on the sofa with the fire burning eating sweets, as usual whilst watching X factor.

We arrived just as the store was opening and gathered outside waiting for the nod from staff. In days gone by children gazed into sweet shop windows with longing in their eyes. This longing was in evidence today as our students gazed in awe at the pristine shop floor and gleaming array of products. It would seem the modern day sweet is Apple flavoured!

Smart phones are amazing they can text, email, phone & use the internet. Now I don't want to sound 40 years older than I am but seriously they are wonderful. I use mine mainly for texting and e-mailing but mainly texting. But they can bring bad habits like 'u' or 'y' instead of 'you' or 'why' which I can't help but using in English or Humanities sometimes. But otherwise smart phones are excellent for example amazing Android or IOS (iPhone/Pod/Pad) apps like 'Barcode Scanner' or 'Angry Birds' or even simply a news app. I think smart phones are amazingly wonderful and easy to use but What do you think, 'Are they a pest?' or 'Are they amazing?'.

Charlotte tells us... Around my house I do many jobs which I don't have to do but I like to help my mum and dad out. Normally at the moment I have to go out to the wood shed and gather piles and piles of wood to put on the fire because at the moment my dad is on crutches because he had an operation on his foot.
Hannah writes...At my home I have to participate in a number of household jobs. For starters I have to wash the dishes every night (this is the main job that I have to do in my house) with help from my older brother Alex. This job also means that we must clear the table and tidy the kitchen after we have washed up.
Another job we are asked to do is to keep our bedrooms tidy however my brother is not good at this and his room is usually a tip. My room on the other hand is tidy and just occasionally needs to be vacuumed.
Other jobs that we do is if my parents ask me to do something, such as going to the shops or help tidy a room, then we must try to do this job.
We are rewarded by every month getting pocket money in to our bank accounts and as we get older the more we get witch I think is very fair.
Finally, what do you think of Katie's house rules?
At home the rules I follow are, that my room is clean and tidy at all times this, I do this by having to make sure I put all my washing away that my shoes are put back in the box and make sure nothing is left on the floor, also I must make sure that all glasses and cups and plates are removed from my room.
This leads me to another rule that I must put everything I use away after I have used them and turn the off electrical thing after use.
Finally I must make sure that when I go out my mum knows where abouts I am planning on going and who I will be with and I must always have my phone with me.
