West Hatch attend National Reading Champions Quiz final
Well done to our team of readers who competed in the National Reading Champions Quiz final. The event was held in London and featured Mr Dilly, the Quiz Master, as well as a Q&A session with award winning author Patrice Lawrence
This was an opportunity for our students to become part of a team, represent West Hatch in a national competition and have the chance to use their wide reading knowledge against other schools. The competition was fierce as we went head to head with 21 schools from across the UK, including independent and grammar schools. Although we did not win on this occasion, it was an amazing experience for our students. However, they did not leave empty-handed. They were awarded with the regional trophy for the school, £20 book tokens each and free books for each student up to the value of £40.
Mrs Sheikh, school librarian said ‘It was great to see how engaged the students were with the quiz and how they supported each other. The event brought much excitement and drama to the wonderful world of reading and we can’t wait to do it all again next year!’
Some special moments during the day: Jacob and Hamza sharing all their snacks with their team mates, making sure everyone had lots of energy during the quiz. Michaela keeping us all busy with Wordle during the train journey which helped with any nerves. Gabriela for being a great team leader and role model for her younger peers.
