On the 2 November, a group of ten pupils from Years 7 and 8 went to Gosforth Central Middle School to compete in the Kids’ Lit Quiz. A series of 100 questions were asked under strange categories such as ‘cannibalism’ and ‘cutlery’. This year there was a record number of teams who entered, with a total of 36 teams made up of 4 people competing for a place at the national finals in London. The competition was very close throughout, with both of our teams placing within the top half. At the quiz there were some of the highest scores that Wayne Mills (the creator of the competition and quiz master) had ever seen. A particular highlight was when the Year 7 team won the tie breaker prize of four books. Two other prizes of £2 were won by our pupils. Overall we all enjoyed the experience and the Year 7 pupils are planning to apply again next year.
