Carnegie Quiz 2017

All six secondary schools quizzing!

Eleven of our Y7 & Y8 students attended the Abingdon Schools Joint Carnegie Quiz at Abingdon School on Tuesday 9th May.
All six schools in Abingdon joined together to celebrate this year’s Carnegie Medal Shortlist with their annual Carnegie Quiz. This marks the half way point for the Carnegie Shadowing scheme in which each school participates.

This year’s shortlisted books are an interesting bunch; with books ranging from hilarious sci-fi adventures to bullying post-war tales.Questions were tough but it was table 8 who won through with the highest score (by 1 point!); Virginia Bentley, Y7, represented
Larkmead in this winning team, Well Done!

Edward Frank, Y7 student, received an award for keeping the pace with the required reading but also having produced some excellent book reviews too – Well Done Ed!
