First silverware of the new school year for Barnes Juniors!

A team of 4 year 5 and 6 children took part in the first inter-schools quiz competition at Fulwell Junior School on Thursday. 

The team were put to the test with 5 tough rounds including spelling, maths problems, comprehension, general knowledge and dingbats.

An amazing spelling round enabled the team to build a massive lead (including words such as picturesque and acquire) and steady scoring gave them a total of 80 points. This was 50 points ahead of their closest rivals, and brought home the shiny new trophy.

Well done to Athena, Alfie, Amy and Jonathon.
