Miss Kingett took a fantastic team of Key Stage 3 pupils to compete in the Kids’ Lit Quiz, held at Gosforth Central Middle School last week. HMS competed against 29 teams from a range of independent and non-independent schools.
Year 7 did really well and demonstrated a strong knowledge of many books. They were some of the youngest competitors there. The rounds were very difficult; even Miss Kingett and Mrs Jackson couldn’t answer some of them!
Year 8 overall scores:
HMS Team was joint 4th with 82 points
The teams that were joint 2nd had 83 points
The winners had 84 points
As you can see from the Year 8 scores, it was so close at the end; the girls really held their own. At half time they were 3rd but fell into 6th position during rounds 5-8. They managed to pull it back during rounds 9 and 10 finishing 4th.
The Year 8 girls won a book each for scoring the highest mark in the stories round.
