Testing Times at Science Quiz Championship
Congratulations to our two teams of Year 5 and 6 pupils who put in very impressive performances in the Kent heat of the National Science Championship, coming second and fourth in a strong field.
With 40 questions covering a huge breadth of topics from inventors and oceanography to astronomy and human biology, the pupils’ scientific knowledge was tested to the very limit. The questions were projected on to a large screen, with a running total of the scores, which made it very exciting to watch, but added to the pressure on the teams! Our pupils rose to the occasion admirably, demonstrating a great grasp of science, showing great teamwork and managing to stay calm and collected throughout.
Congratulations also to the very impressive New Beacon team who won the contest after leading from the start.
