NE ENGLAND

Hi Folks
Cracking start to the first round of the UK Kids' Lit Quiz. The authors' team of Linda Strachan, Mark Robson, Helen Limon and Steve from Seven Stories was too talented and too knowledgeable for the kids' teams tonight. The winning school team however was Durham High School. Alexandra, Abigail, Lauren and Bolin took first place edging out King James  and Hexham Middle School who jointly tied for second place followed by the King James 1 team who were third. The prizes were awarded by Anne Fine who also assisted with the marking. Anne was amazed by the efficiency and enthusiasm of the whole event. Thanks to our sponsors: SERCO, Usborne Books, and the SLA. It was a very exciting night with only three points separating the top four teams. Wonderful start.
Happy reading

Well done for the first heat of the season.
Thank you Anne for going along and seeing for yourself just what great readers we have here in the UK.
I look forward to meeting the winning team in Wimbledon in December. But, of course you are all winners!!
