On Thursday this week our 2 teams and reserves, travelled to Chesham Prep to take part in the Year 5 and 6 National Science Quiz. The 40 questions were as challenging as ever, ranging from the whereabouts of the Ilium bone to the boiling point of water on top of Everest! After a slow start, the 2 teams took up commanding positions, with Team 2 taking the lead for a short while. Going into the last question, the teams were in 2nd and 3rd places, but it was a very competitive field of 9 teams and at the very end, Gateway 1 had admirably secured 2nd place and Gateway 2 were 5th. As always, all spectators were on the edges of their seats throughout.
So a big congratulations and thank you to the teams:
Gateway 1: Beatrice N, Ibrahim A, William F and Harry V
Gateway 2: Eleanor dN, Lillie J, Gabriel R and William S
Reserves: Ben E, Niamh S and Isla Mc
Thanks also to Dylan W, who had to pull out on the day because of illness.
The children were by far the best supported on the day - thanks to Mr Lloyd and all of the parents who were able to come along and cheer them on.
Very well done to all involved.
