Science Quiz Teams are Shooting for the Stars
We are delighted and excited to announce that Gayhurst School has two teams in the National Finals of the The National Year 5 and 6 Science Championship. Team R, made up of James R, Chenna M, Noah K and Mont H and team C, made up of James C, Alice L, Dhruv J and Oliver F, returned home victorious from the latest round of ‘quizzing’. Heat questions included the themes of botany, zoology and astronomy. The children arrived back at Gayhurst feeling ‘over the moon’ that all eight of them would be making the trip to The Dominion Theatre in London for the Final in June.
The Quiz Club National Championships are the largest inter-school competitions in the country. They are an exciting and challenging way to broaden our children’s scientific knowledge and also offer a platform for our most able young scientists to showcase their abilities as part of a team representing Gayhurst.
The finals in June will be in front of an audience of more than 1500 supporters and will include the 100 top teams from schools across the country. Mrs Inshaw, Gayhurst’s Head of Science said, “I am so proud of our children. To be taking two teams to the finals in June is very exciting for the members of the school’s Quiz Club and Gayhurst in general”.
