Science Inter School Quiz Championship

On Monday we took 2 science teams to compete in the Area Heat of the Year 5 and 6 Science Inter School Quiz Championship, against 8 other teams from 5 other Independent Schools. The setting was Claires Court School in Maidenhead. It was a challenging experience, with 40 demanding multiple choice questions - for example:

Titania is the largest Moon of which planet in our Solar System?

Which animal lives in a lodge?

Which group of dinosaurs had characteristic long necks, small heads and long tails?

What is the Chemical Symbol of the metal Tungsten?

It was a close run affair and the teams worked very well in their groups of four with one being in the top 3 for long periods of the contest.

The Team comprising of Cameron M, Freddie B, William S and Tilly S finished the contest in 3rd place on 1910 points (20 points behind second place!) and the Team of Eleanor R, Joe N, Teddy O and Roisin G finished in 6th place on 1345 points. The winners were University College School from Hampstead.

I would like to thank Henry Y and Peter N for being reserves on the day; Mrs La Farge for her much appreciated support and the many parents who came along to cheer the teams on.
