House Quiz

On Friday we held a House Quiz in the hall.  The House Captains, Sophie, Defne, Georgina and Evie have been preparing all term, sharing ideas, planning the questions and making posters.

We started with the KS1 quiz, Oak, Beech, Chestnut and Willow houses were split into four teams, each with a helper from Year 6.  The House Captains asked the questions.  Each set of questions had been set by the class teachers in Year 1 and 2 and there were some tricky questions like: “Who invented the telephone?” and “What is the name of Miss Crick’s dog?”.  There were also picture rounds, a rhyming round and a map reading round.

We finished the quiz with a bonus round, where two children from each house were selected to go onto the stage and see who could write down the answer to some extremely difficult questions fastest.

It was a very competitive quiz, with Oak house declared the winner.

The KS2 & 3 quiz followed, their teachers had set some very challenging questions, such as: “Which country was Picasso born in?”, “Who inspired Roald Dahl for the character The BFG?”, “What is the difference between a food chain and a food web?” and “Name the line of latitude that appears at 23 degrees south”.  There were also picture rounds, a map reading round and a very difficult Maths and Science round.

In the bonus round one child from Year 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 came up to the stage to see who could answer the fastest and were asked quick fire questions on a variety of topics, including French, maths, spelling, history, music and geography.

Whilst we were waiting for the quiz totals to be totted up we all sang the Coopersale Hall rap and finally Willow house was declared the winner.

Finally we had the Reception Quiz.  The Year 7s and house captains helped the children write down their answers.  The children were asked to find the right picture, spell some rhyming words and some questions on their current learning topic such as “Where does sushi come from?”  The children did very well in their first quiz, with Oak and Willow tying for 1st place!

It was a great way to end the half term.  Everyone got into the team spirit, with team chants, mascots and posters and cheering on their housemates.  Well done to our House Captains for their hard work.
