Quiz Club 2019

8th March 2019

On Friday 8th March, four pupils from year 3,4,5 and 6 all took part in a national quiz competition.

This was the area heat taking place in Brandeston at Brandeston Hall Prep school. It was a very prestigious location and one that all the children loved. There was seven teams taking part altogether and the children were quite nervous as they sat in the large hall waiting for it to begin. 

There are 40 questions altogether, with each question having a different score. The children work together as a team and answer the question accordingly. Sometimes they agree as a team and sometimes they work strategically if they do not know the answer. 

The Chilton team was out in front for three quarters of the competition and as you can imagine they were very excited. Simon the quiz master, who used to present Child Genius on Channel 4 kept saying how well they were doing and wondered whether anyone would catch up.

Unfortunately they did in the last quarter of the competition and Chilton finally came third. 

Mrs Bird and the parent supporters were really proud of the team as this competition is by no means easy. 

Well done.
