On Thursday 15th June a Battle of the Books competition took place at The Roche School, Wandsworth. Six schools participated including Beatrix Potter, All Saints, Hotham, The Roche School, Granard and Riversdale. The event pitches teams of able Year 4 readers together to test their memory, reading skills, creativity and team-work, based on a series of books they have read as a group during the year. It included a weakest link style quiz and the performance of a drama piece which they had to prepare on the day. The children also had to produce a piece of artwork based on one of the books.
After an intense and rewarding competition, this year’s winners were announced as Beatrix Potter. Our team did incredibly well and came third overall.
