On the Buzzer Quiz

On Tuesday, eight Year 6 pupils travelled to Uppingham for the On the Buzzer general knowledge quiz competition prepared to pit their wits against ten other teams.

Team A was comprised of Matthew, Wilf, Arthur and William; Team B of Euan, Sophie, Maureen and Aydin. Team A impressed the audience with their knowledge on animals and art amongst other things but, up against two tough teams in their first round matches, narrowly missed out on a quarter final place. They went through to the plate competition, conducted pub-quiz style, which was extremely close and the boys missed out on a place in the top two by just two points! 

Team B lost their opening first round match against Maidwell but went on to win their next 3 matches, meaning they sailed through to the next round. They faced a team from Witham who were very speedy on the buzzers and, despite some excellent correct answers and interruptions, Team B were knocked out in the quarter final. 

We stayed to watch a very exciting final, and the teams returned to school rightly proud of their efforts - and their shiny new badges! Thank you to the team at Uppingham for a fantastic afternoon.
