Scissett Middle School are World Book Day champions once again

Scissett Middle School

Over 120 pupils from a total of 32 schools in Kirklees have competed against each other in an annual literacy quiz that celebrates the love of reading.

On 7 March, Huddersfield Town Hall became the finale for the World Book Day Quiz, where pupils aged from 10 to 13 were tested on their literary skills.

Organised by a Kirklees-based schools resource service named booksplus, the quiz consisted of six rounds of six questions about various books and authors.

At the end of the competition, the Scissett Middle School B team was crowned victorious, taking home a special trophy, which will now be on display in school for another year.

Each team member was also presented with a book token and Amy Mortimer, Partnerships Manager from Reading Matters presented the school with a voucher for a Reading Leaders training course.

In second place was another team from Scissett Middle School and third place went to a team from Kirkburton Middle School after winning a tie-breaker with Colne Valley High School.

Book prizes were presented throughout the afternoon and everyone who took part was presented with a certificate in honour of their efforts.
