Kid’s Lit Quiz
On Friday 8th June, Miss Thompson took 16 pupils to Chantry in Morpeth during lunch. This was for a ‘friendly’ literacy quiz with schools around Newcastle. It was held in Chantry Middle School’s hall.
There were loads of tables set out for each team which was made up of 4 pupils. The topics allowed the questions to be based upon a whole range of different books: forests, woods and trees, terrifying teachers, Pictionary and shops. The Headteacher read out the questions which could focus on the authors or the events, places and characters from different books .
In order to keep the cogs of the brain turning we had been provided with a big tub of sweets that we tried to share around the table fairly!
Unfortunately, none of the GEMS’ teams came in the top three; however, one of our teams won a round so they got to choose any book from a wide variety of the best sellers.
We arrived back to school at 5.00pm after a very worthwhile experience!
