The annual national Key Stage 2 Quiz Club competition – Regional stage
12 Feb 2016
Another year passes and yet again this eagerly anticipated and highly coveted event on the school calendar did not fail to produce the high quality questions and fierce competition we have come to know and expect.
The team of four pupils (Cecil Taylor, Rosie Johnson, Poppy Wraith and Georgina Eatch) were selected from the Witham Hall year group competition round. The team were in the lead after 12 questions but unfortunately could not answer the following four questions accurately and this allowed Bedford Modern to move comfortably into the lead. Nonetheless, it was a very respectable 3rd place finish behind the two Bedford teams.
There were, as you might expect, some very tough questions but our team answered 85% of the 40 questions correct. The aim was to work as a team to select the correct answer from four multiple choice options in order to gain maximum marks. Witham Hall worked incredibly well as a team reaching a very high score of 1290.
It was a real pleasure to take such a committed team who were fabulous ambassadors for Witham Hall.
I would like to thank our parent supporters.
