Hi Everyone
Tonight's heat was the largest we'd ever had in London. Broxbourne High School was bursting at the seams with over forty teams including the World Champion school team from City of London.The talent was certainly evident. We had two author teams competing against one another as well as against the school teams. And with authors to spare we had them marking and keeping the scoresheet as well. All the heats were contested and the scores were competitive. I enjoyed seeing all the dedicated readers there tonight reading their prize books between rounds. Tonight's heat was won by Kings College Junior A team for the first time followed by Arnold House B and then the 2010 World Champions- The City of London School for Girls third.
Good stuff

I had a really enjoyable time last night. I was in the Herts and Essex 'B' team. I had such a fun time and the evening was very welcoming. Unfortunately, we didn't come into the top 3 like last year (we came second there!), but I think we did really well. I must admit that I think we played our joker on the wrong category. We did ridiculously well in the poetry lines round and we should have played our joker on that, but oh well. At least we got some good points from our actual joker round on Cats.
Thank you so much for having us and well done to the winning team!
From Georgia and the rest of the Herts and Essex high school.
