On Thursday the 29th of November, a group of six budding geographers attended The World Wise Annual Quiz accompanied by Mr Pickup. The event was hosted by the University of Sheffield Geography Department and over 15 other schools participated. We were split into two teams: Y8s and Y9/10s. The teams competed separately throughout the five rounds.
The first round was a Kahoot round that was based on fieldwork questions. We finished 6th and 14th in this round. Then there was a round all about Italy. There were questions on the cities, population, mountains. Next, there was the Landmarks in the UK and then the OS maps round. Finally, there was a round about the Geography of Sheffield. Some of the questions were quite difficult but we all did our best and both teams scored full marks on some of the categories.
The evening was a massive success with the A team coming third and the B team not far behind! We all loved the quiz and the Y8s are looking forward to taking part next year. Thank you to Mr Pickup for all the organisation!
