18 Jan General knowledge quiz.
The 9th January was Holy Trinity’s first match in the annual Top of the Form general knowledge competition hosted by the Rotary Club of Carshalton Park. Our team of four Year 6 children battled against a team from Amy Johnson Primary School through 10 tough rounds on subjects such as Geography, Science and Nature, History, Maths, English Language and Literature and Sport. We did extremely well in some rounds, managing to even pick up some bonus points by answering questions the other team answered incorrectly and by the halfway point were well in the lead. However, as the competition wore on, Amy Johnson managed to close the gap so much that by the end of the ninth and penultimate round, both teams had matching scores. This meant it was all down to just eight questions in the final round. Unfortunately, Amy Johnson managed to score more than our intrepid team and we lost the match by only 3 points. Therefore, we will not being moving on to the next round. Each contestant received a certificate to mark their participation in the competition and we are extremely proud of our team: Jack, Riya, Harry and Kapil.
