Battersea Readers Cup

The Battersea Readers Cup was held at Thomas's in Battersea. This was the third time for the competition to be held in a super venue in a splendid auditorium. Our team of five Y6 pupils had to read the following books: Roof toppers by Katherine Rundell, Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman and Soldier Dog by Sam Angus.

Each round was based on one book with ten questions and the final round was ten questions on general book knowledge. At the end of the first round, we were in second place and in the lead every subsequent round. But it was in the final round on general book knowledge that JB came into their own and answered question after question, resulting in the final score of 1900 to JB, 900 to Christchurch, 800 to Westbridge and 100 points to St Georges.

We couldn’t believe we had won the cup for the third year in succession. A huge well done to Alex, Sebastian, Ryan B, Youma C and Nathaniel who represented the school tremendously. It was also lovely to see all their families supporting as well as other Y6 pupils and staff. Well done also to Miss Thompson for coaching the children so well.
