Lewisham Book Quiz

Ten Addey students from years 7 and 8 travelled to Prendergast Hilly Fields College to compete against teams from Sydenham, Forest Hill, Bonus Pastor and Prendergast Hilly Fields.


Working in teams of 3 to 4, they tackled rounds on Myths and legends, Animals, Heroes and Villains, Food,  a Mixed Bag of Questions, identified authors from their covers and did a picture round.


This is only the second year that Addeys has taken part in the quiz, and we hope that as students read more they will improve their chances of winning.


We intend to take two teams to the Kids Lit Quiz regional heat in November – who knows, with a lot of reading, one of our teams may go through to the national final!


We are looking forward to the Lewisham Book Award Event in June. On this day, students who have read the 5 books in the running for the Lewisham Book Award for Years 7 and 8 work with students from other schools to make presentations about the books: 'After Tomorrow' by G. Cross, 'Colin Fischer' by Miller and Stentz, 'Wonder' by R J Palacio, 'Ratburger' by D. Walliams and 'The Messenger Bird' by R. Eastham.
