Quiz Club National Inter-school Competition
On Wednesday 29th January, our Year 5 and 6 Science Quiz Teams went to the Science Museum IMAX theatre to represent Alpha at the regional heats of the National Inter-School Science Quiz Club Competition. The IMAX theatre has one of the biggest cinema screens in Europe so there were no complaints about not being able to see the board! The questions on the day ranged from microscopic life to the stars in galaxies far, far away and they reminded us of the pressure of the contestants on ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire?’ Both Alpha Teams did fantastically well.
The ‘Great Glasses Group’ which consisting of Khiya, Morayo, Vedika and Siddharth, scored 1555 points, beating Haberdashers’ Team 2, Balgowan, Danes Hill, Northcote Lodge , Cheam Fields, Kerem School, Russell House Team 2 , Green Street, Alleyn’s Team 2, Northcote Lodge, Hornsby House and Belmont School.
The ‘Super Serious Scientist' group consisting of Rian, Advait, George and Arjun B, scored 1935 points, beating all of the above and Merchant Taylors’, Haberdashers’ Team 1, Glendower School, Hornsby House, Ibstock Place, Alleyn's, Gayhurst, Homefield Prep, Robin Junior, Farringtons, The Hall Team 2 and Breaside Prep School.
The children enjoyed the quiz and we hope to have scored high enough to qualify for the finals later this year.
