Kid's Lit Quiz

We had our schools final of the Kid's Lit Quiz in school today. For the last month or so we have running different rouns for students in yrs7and8 to compete against each other on their knowledge of books. The final had 11 teams who had scored the highest through the earlier rounds all competing for two places in the regional final for the South East and London to be held next week.
I was really pleased with how well all the teams did and it was an extremely close result. The winning group won by just one point and we have 3 teams tied in second. We ended up having to do a tie breaker - which was about the only i hadn't planned for!!
It really was a great day though and the two groups going through to the final I'm sure will do really well.
Running the event in school has been an excellent addition to our calendar of work in the library. It has livened up our autumn term and giving us another way of getting students to interact with books. Wish us luck for the regional final!!
