Spend time with those close to you

Family comes first

Why don’t you have a go at writing your own Haiku, perhaps about life in lockdown, and we can share these too.

Friday 23 May 12.35 The Final


Each match in the group stage lasted between 15-20 minutes. If you are not familiar with the format, it is a lot like University Challenge on TV but not exactly the same!


  • Four people on a team, one of whom is the captain
  • First there is a starter question. If you know the answer, you “buzz in” with your name. On this question no conferring with team mates is allowed.
  • If you get a starter question wrong, someone from the other team may buzz in without conferring
  • If nobody gets the starter question right, the quizmaster will ask another. Whichever team answers a starter question correctly will then be asked three bonus questions.
  • You can confer with your teammates on bonus questions and your captain must give the answer for your team.
  • If you get a bonus question wrong, it WILL be passed over to the other team.
  • All correct answers (starter or bonus) are worth 10 points. Every point will count towards your overall standing in the competition.

First round results from Monday are as follows:

2B 290 v 2L 80

2J 190 v 2H 160

Results from Friday:

2J 330 v 2W 50

2P 250 v 50 2L

Which means 2J book a spot in the final!

2B and 2P will play off for the other final spot on Monday.


The competition will take place during the afternoon and early evening of your sports afternoon on Monday.  You will receive an email during the morning, that will contain the rules/guidelines and a link to a Microsoft form to complete after your activity.  You will score points for participating in one activity, related to how long you perform the activity for (see scoresheet).

There is a wide spread of activities and timings to allow all of you to participate and make as fair and engaging competition as possible. You will score points by going beyond an activity ‘threshold’.

For Example: Completing a walk that afternoon/evening, will receive 1pt for walking 20mins or beyond, but will receive 3pts, if they continue the walk beyond 30mins.

You can only complete one activity and the most points any individual can score is 5.  The form will include a file upload for evidence, which will be check by your PE teachers! You should all now be used to evidencing activity, from your PE tasks.

Have a great weekend!
