Hi Folks

We witnessed a wonderful culminatory final at Warwick University this afternoon of the 2011 Kids' Lit Quiz. The teams from 16 heats assembled for the grand final and what a beauty it was. The winner was George Watson's from Edinburgh followed by the City of London School for Girls, in third place was the City of Norwich School and Windsor High School came fourth. All teams displayed dazzling literary brains and the afternoon just flowed.

Many thanks to our wonderful sponsors: Serco, Peters Books, SLA, MLS and Scholastic Books (UK). and to OUP for supplying all the goodie bags. A special thank you must also go to the Coventry Council for supporting today's event. Thank you Joy and your staff you were all so efficient and helpful.

If you missed today's sport of reading then you missed a real cracker. To all those who assisted in any way thank you so much it was brilliant and I'm sure Rebecca, Beth Rosie and Katherine will do you proud in New Zealand.

Merry Christmas
