Well the scene was set with Ant and Dec and Joey Essex for the first EVER literacy based SPARKS Bush Tucker Trial!

Intrigued? SPARKS pupils adopted the role of daring celebrities though instead of the glorious outback we braved the chilly depths of the Study Centre and wild terrifying beasts were replaced by SPARKS coach’s Ms Martin and Mrs Doughty!!!

Pupils enthusiastically delved for STARS in the murkiest jelly snake filled mud (chocolate angel delight) to reveal clues. From the clues teams were able to decipher the answer to the bush tucker questions based on Chapters one to seven of Orange’s In No Man’s Land.

“The mud felt disgusting but it was a fun way to learn more about the book, We won seven stars so we brought back doughnuts for our camp!” said one of our pupils.

Watch this space for more celebrity trials and exploits, rumour has it that The Great British Bake Off may be next!
