John Burns win Battersea Readers' Cup 2014

On Tuesday 14th January 2014, five Year 6 girls from John Burns Primary school went to Thomas' School in Battersea to participate in the 'Readers' Cup'.

The girls had read three different books: Wild Boy, The Boy who swam with Piranhas and Journey to the River Sea.  All great books, which have been recommended to the rest of Year 6 to read and enjoy.  The children were faced with a university style question time against two other schools.  Three rounds about the three different books and one round linked to general knowledge about literature.

The girls did a superb job, fighting their way to victory.  The cup has one engraving from last years winners from John Burns; now an additional engraving for 2014 from John Burns again!

Congratulations to all the girls who read the books over their Christmas holidays and discussed the books during every lunch time and break time to ensure they were ready for any questions they were asked - great dedication and determination to succeed - well done!

Fabulous evening – bringing the cup back to John Burns for another Year!
