This year’s competition started in class a couple of weeks ago with ‘Round 1’. The best scores from this round then made it through to the semi-final. The best scores from that then made it to the final which we held on Monday 25th February.
The 7 finalists then battled it out. Each question was revealed, one at a time, and the contestants had to write their answer down on a whiteboard. They then revealed their answers: correct = stay in; incorrect = lose a ‘life’ (they each had one ‘life’) or they were out if they had no lives left. Great knowledge was on show and the final winner was Harry from 5S!
We hope that all children enjoyed the experience and can use their improved knowledge and understanding with our ‘Holiday Show’ International Primary Curriculum (IPC) topic, which has an emphasis on geography skills. The event also served as an opportunity to develop the children’s sense of being ‘Global Citizens’, one of our attributes from the school’s Aide Memoire. Well done to all.
Mr Greg Wilde, Year 5 Leader
