On Thursday 2.11.17 we held our annual Sponne heat for the Kids Lit Quiz after school in the LRC. Year 7 and 8 English groups were represented by quiz teams, and well-supported by friends and family who came to watch.
Many thanks to members of the English staff who came to help with marking, and to Eleanor Rees, Millie Rees and Tom Perks who were our question masters, scorekeeper and general helpers.
Students answered questions on Titles, Authors, Places in Books, ‘Bits ‘n’ Pieces’ and a picture round. Our two winning teams were:
Year 7 (7CJ) Ben Allen, Jack Read, Scarlett Baillie, Daisy Riding
Year 8 (8AE) Lotty Dawson, Sophie Burling, Charlotte Bell, Nyah Lock
On Wednesday 15.11.17 both teams travelled to Comberton College, Cambridgeshire for the regional heats. Both teams did brilliantly; in particular the Year 8s. Sophie also won two spot prizes for individual answers. Both teams finished well inside the top half and did better than we have ever done before, so huge congratulations to all these students.
