Chosen by the children to represent important parts of our locality, Belle Vue has 4 different houses: Eden House, Hadrian House, Pennine House and Solway House. At the start of primary school, each child gets placed in a house and remains with their teammates throughout their journey at Belle Vue. Our Year 6 team captains, elected each year into the role, organise and run a calendar of events that children complete in their house teams. We think this injects lots of fun into school life!

Events and Competitions This Year
World Cup Shootout:
Each child was split into an 8-person team to represent a country playing in the world cup. Over the course of the tournament, teams played against each other every lunch time, following the fixtures in real life. Our team captains managed the tournament brilliantly on the playground throughout. Well done to Serbia, our eventual World Cup Shootout Winners!
Christmas Jumper Competition:
Children had to design their very own Christmas jumper, with the eventual winners being made into actual jumpers! Many thanks to the 200+ entrants (and to the House Captains for managing to choose two winners!).
Past Events and Competitions
Our Team Captains have put on an array of events and competitions in the past. Here is just a flavour of the exciting things our children have taken part in..
House Crest Design Competition:
Children designed crests to represent their house. They also came up with some fabulous key words that would bring their teammates together. The winning designs were then professionally made into crests and are now displayed in our halls!
The Great Belle Vue Bake Off:
Over two separate rounds (one with the theme of 'thanks' and another designed to represent the school houses) children baked cupcakes, traybakes and showstoppers! There were hundreds of entries that all looked (and tasted!) FANTASTIC. What do you think?!
Children were challenged to take a photograph to represent the theme of 'nature'. The winners were awarded with two framed prints of their photographs: one to take home and one that is proudly displayed in school!
'Teamwork' House Day:
Children from across the whole school took part in a house day to encourage teamwork. Working together in mixed-year groups, children enjoyed 4 different activities, all run by the team captains! Lots of fun was had and many new friends were made.
