With Half Term almost upon us, children across Junior Prep enjoyed some friendly, yet highly competitive, Inter-House rivalry as their quiz teams were pitted against each other in front of their respective supporters.
Teams of four were picked using results from the individual house quiz, which took place earlier in the year, with the top child from each year within each house being selected.
Teams were then questioned on topics ranging from ‘Science & Nature’ to ‘Famous People’. The ‘Picture Round’ and ‘Guess the Sound Round’ proved as popular as ever, whilst the ‘BH’ and ‘Brain Buster’ rounds also got them thinking…
This year also saw the introduction of new tactical devices such as ‘Ask the House’ and ‘Phone a Teacher’. The ‘Joker’ was also played on a round of their choosing in order to score double points.
‘Time Teasers’ allowed the scorers a chance to catch up, whilst members of each House’s support volunteered to compete in tasks such as having to spell their full name backwards, and recite the 12 times table. These were followed by score updates which helped keep tension levels high.
The lead changed hands throughout the quiz and in the end, only a handful of points separated all four Houses. However, final bragging rights went to the Blue House team, which was led superbly by Eloise Dearling (Year 6), but also included Heather Alabaster (Year 5), India Prince (Year 4) and Sophia Slay (Year 3), who all played vital roles as well.
Thanks to all the staff and children for helping to make it such a fun event. Who will make the teams next year?
