Yorkshire Heat 9 Nov

Gee whizz this heat started with drums, harps and an orchestra to warm up the audience. And with a massive turnout of 36 teams it didn't take much to make this an wonderful afternoon at the North Light Gallery and to celebrate a huge Kids' Lit Quiz yummy chocolate cake was cut by Penny Dolan (the visiting author) and shared around all the teams and even after all the distributing there was cake left over!. Beckfoot School were the new winners and will now go forward to the national final on 3 Dec.
Hope to see you at a heat

This year’s Kids Lit Quiz was an astounding success with several Kirklees schools taking part including Scissett Middle School, St John Fisher Catholic School, Gomersal CE(C) Middle School, Colne Valley High School, Holmfirth High School, Whitechapel Middle School, Honley High School and Kirkburton Middle School who won fourth place!
The event opened at North Light Gallery with an impressive musical performance from Scissett Middle school, and special guest harpists from Silcoates School. Author Penny Dolan was also on hand to sign prizes and chat to the kids.
Quiz Master Wayne Mills managed the quiz as in previous years and everyone held high spirits throughout the event. Plus a big chocolate cake to celebrate the event kept a smile on everyone’s’ face!
Beckfoot School from Bradford won first place and will attend the National Final on the 3rd November.
Thankyou and well done to all schools who attended and the staff who made this event possible!
