Children from Years 5 and 6 took part in the Preliminary round of the House General Knowledge Competition, back in April. Participants had to answer 50 questions, with the top five scores in each house making up the teams for the final (four team members and a reserve). Felix M recorded the highest score in the Preliminary round with 48 out of 50 and William W (Y5) managed an impressive 44 ½ .
Barnardo: Bethen E, Mei-ya L, Alfred C, Ben P, (reserve: Charlotte T)
Brunel: William W, Holly J, Jake R, Sasha G, (reserve: Will S)
Jenner: Felix M, Fitz J, Isabella C, Cameron M (Y5), (reserve: Charlie O)
Seacole: Callum H, Ollie D, Sam W, Alastair C, (reserve: Sam J)
The competition final was held in the School Hall on Monday 14th July, watched by an audience of Year 5 and 6 supporters and staff. 48 interactive questions were displayed on the big screen, consisting of 11 individual rounds and one team round (for double points).
In a nail biting competition the lead chopped and changed throughout, but it was Brunel who eventually opened up a winning margin to claim victory and round off a very successful year.
